Who is LSESU RAG?
LSESU RAG stands for Raising and Giving, and that's exactly what we do. We are a team of LSE students dedicated to fundraising for charities, and we are one of the fastest growing RAG societies in the UK, raising over £200,000 last year alone. We raise money for a number of amazing causes, so you know that the funds from your Freshers' Week not only mean you get to have a good time, but the funds go to people who need them most.
However, we're more than just the Fresher's RAG Band! Follow us on social media for the countless ways you can be involved throughout the years, from small one-off fundraising events to our challenges, including marathons and hikes in Machu Picchu and Everest!
Can I buy one?
The RAG Band is only for incoming LSE students (no other UoL students please!), so you can buy one if you're a new first year or a postgraduate. But we don't want our second and third years to miss out - we will be selling individual tickets to our events at a later date, but you CANNOT buy the RAG Band.
Please note that you must be over 18 to purchase the RAG Band, as this is the legal UK drinking age and you will NOT be allowed into clubs without valid ID. Your hall committees and LSESU will be running non-alcoholic events to make sure you don't miss out if you are underage!
