At the crack of dawn on Saturday, 19 teams piled onto a coach, blindfolded and taken to an unidentified location to raise money for the brilliant charity, Spires.
Their mission? To get back to LSE as fast as possible, without spending any money.
This is no easy feat. To make it even more exciting, this year we set them a variety of challenges: basic, intermediate and legendary, to have a bash at whilst on their journeys home.
Clad in amazing costumes (Bilbo RAGgins in full beard and cloak being one of my faves) the teams took to the streets of Barry Island, Wales- home of Gavin & Stacey - to knock on the doors of strangers’ cars at petrol stations, pull over drivers with signs pleading for lifts and blag tickets onto coaches, trains and buses, in the hope of getting back to base.
At an impressive 3:50pm, the first team back, with mighty bravado, made it through the doors of Lincoln’s Inn, much to the surprise of RAG HQ. They had been lucky enough to sweet-talk their way onto a train headed straight to London from Cardiff, earning themselves a whopping 40 points for first place!
BUT, they may not be going straight for Gold just yet, Carpool Saunders and Hitchin’ Havoc earned 20 points by completing a legendary challenge: a victory lap down a high street whilst being carried by strangers! They also persuaded a coach load of passengers to do the Harlem Shake, ticking off yet another box in the challenges list. Check out RAG’s Facebook page for more photos of the teams arriving.
Most importantly, the teams managed to raise an INCREDIBLE, £7,000 for Spires!!!!
They certainly set the bar high, but if you’ve been inspired by RAG Gets Lost and think you can take on an even bigger challenge, make sure to check out our next fundraising adventure, new this year (!)
We’ll be posting all the details for our info session on the RAG Facebook page so make sure you give us a like! Feel free to follow us on Twitter if you’re interested too. #cheekyplug.

RAG Does Tough Guy 2014
Tom, your Education Officer, asked LSE’s students whether their education here has met their expectations.
At Re-Imagining Our Education on Tuesday night, it was time to answer.
What was the student and staff opinion? Tom fills us in…
On Tuesday night, students, award winning teachers and LSE staff debated education at LSE.
Improving teaching quality and student engagement were the main points of conversation, and every member of the discussion agreed that more student input in making the decisions that affect education was needed.
I’m keen to continue these events to provide that input – and focus them on more specific issues, like changes to our library and to assessment happening this year.
Thanks to all that came and keep an eye out for the next one! If you have any comments or suggestions - especially if you weren’t able to attend the event - drop me an email.
