Loughborough Students’ Union Rag raises more than £1 million for charity… again!

Loughborough Students’ Union Rag raised over £1m to help support local and national charities for the sixth time running this year.

The students managed to raise an impressive £1,393,847.08 through a wide range of fundraising activities including a poppy appeal raising more than £72,000, a charity cycle from London to Paris and a charity trek to China for the first time.

The money raised went towards helping and supporting charities such as Dementia UK, Make a Wish and Meningitis Research Foundation as well as local charities Minnie’s Friends, Peter Le Marchant Trust and the Second Chance Youth Shelter. 

Rag Vice President for the past year, Danni Hitchins, said: “I am so proud of everyone involved in Loughborough Students Rag this year. It has been a tough year for us but the team has handled it all so well and the total they have raised is truly incredible.

“I would like to thank the Rag committee in particular for their hard work and dedication this year, I could not have asked for a better team.”
