Donate to Save the Children
Donate to Belfast Samaritans

QUB RAG is the official fundraising group of the Students’ Union - bringing Queen’s students together to make the world a better place!

It helps students give back to the communities and causes that they’re passionate about, all while having fun and making new friends.

Every student at Queen’s is automatically a member of RAG, and each year it’s led by a committee of dedicated, passionate, and lively volunteers.

RAG is creative, innovative, and inclusive and organises student fundraising events, activities and competitions that are slightly beyond the norm!

Each year, the entire student body votes for RAG's charities. This year our students chose:

Belfast Samaritans
Belfast Samaritans provides support to anyone who is in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide throughout the UK and Ireland. Their helpline, 116 123, is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Find out more here and donate to their Just Giving Page here.

Save the Children
Save the Children improves the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.

  • Homeplus
