Ucc students raise 20000 for charity

Thursday, 6th August, 2015 1:00am

Students from UCC managed to raise €20,000 for a number of local and national charities and are looking for charities who wish to be part of next year's Raise and Give (RAG) fundraising.

The majority of the funds were presented to Pieta House and Cork ARC Cancer Support House with additional donations being made to UCC charitable societies, including Barnardos, the Simon Community, SVP and more.

UCC Students' Union (UCC SU) organise RAG events to harness the goodwill and enthusiasm among students to engage with the wider community and give something back to charity.

Thanking everyone who got involved in RAG, Aidan Coffey, UCCSU President credited UCC students, who “continue to raise funds in exciting and innovative ways”. He said: “It was incredible to see everyone in the university get behind the RAG effort this year. The money that was raised will make a huge difference to people's lives, and further solidify the links between 'town and gown' in Cork.”

Barry Nevin, UCCSU communications officer said: “This year for the first time UCCSU invited charities nationwide to submit applications to become a beneficiary of UCC RAG. We received some 61 hugely compelling applications, eventually whittling them down and picking some fantastic charities.”

Any charity who wishes to be part of UCC RAG for the coming year can do so on the following link by 14 August at 5pm. See for details.
