Hello and Welcome to your RAG society 2011!

RAG (Raise and Give) exists to raise money for local, national and
international charities through small and large events across the year. You
might know us best for our Beer Race, the biggest fancy dress pub crawl of
Swansea Union, and maybe you joined us at the brand new Charity Shield at
the beginning of term. There's loads of ways to get involved and everyone's
interests are catered for!

*Our First Social*

We'll be holding our first social on Monday the 24th of October from 9pm in
Bar Quarter. This will be a meet and greet as well as a chance to find out
more about what we're up to this year.

Tickets for Oceana afterwards will be available from tomorrow, and cost just
£3, with 50p of that going back to the society, so please buy from us! I'll
be around campus Thursday, Friday and Monday, so please call or text
07988034718 if you want to get a ticket.

*RAG Training*

This year we're offering some brief training for those who want to get
involved with RAG who perhaps don't feel they have experience in the charity
sector. This training is open to anyone and everyone, and you don't need to
sign up - just come along! It starts at 4pm in the Xtreme Lounge, on Monday
24th October, and will last just under an hour. It's a great chance to get
involved and will provide lots of useful tranferrable skills that look great
on a CV.


RAG will be supporting the German Society at this year's Oktoberfest! The
event will be held in the Xtreme lounge on 27th of October at 7.30pm, and
features German Beers and pretzels and much more! It's £2 entry, and we'd
love to see as many of you there as possible! We need some volunteers too,
so if you're able to give up two hours of your time to help with this fun
event, please let us know.

*Our Charities for the Year*

We're excited to announce our chosen charities for 2011/2012:

St John's
Help for Heroes
Ray Gravell
Ty Hafan
Cancer Research
SOS Africa
National Autistic Society

That's all for now - from now on emails will be arriving in your inbox every
Monday, and we look forward to seeing you at Training and the Social :)
