What's on the RAG Band?


6 nights, starting on Sunday 22nd September 2019 (the official move in day for LSE halls) and finishing with our final night on Friday 27th September 2019. We will be beginning our 6 day countdown on Saturday 10th August, announcing all the nights we have planned.























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, having in the past raised up to £200,000 in a year. 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 year, from small one-off fundraising events to our challenges, including marathons and hikes in Mount Kilimanjaro and Everest!

The RAG Band is only for incoming LSE students (no other UoL students please!), so you can buy one if you are 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 so watch out.
