Our ethos is that we are student lead, with fundraising done by students for the causes that they care about. We find that most of the students who choose to fundraise with us come to us with an organisation in mind already that they want to support. However, for the few that are unsure we keep a Charity Database that we share with them of organisations who have approached us. If you would like to add your organisation to our database please fill out the form here - Thursday Jun 29Form Link Read more »

Sheffield RAG are set to take their silliness very seriously for Christmas Jumper Day 2016!
On Friday 16 December, we invite students, colleagues and friends to join us in putting on the warmest, wackiest and most wonderful festive woollies we can find to raise money for Save the Children’s Christmas Jumper Day.
Silliness is set to sweep the nation as millions of people in schools, offices and homes up and down the country donate £2 to sport a festive sweater for the day. From technicolour festive knits festooned with reindeer antlers to balancing baubles, the best bit is that all this silliness has a serious purpose.
Save the Children will use the money raised through this wacky woolly-wearing for things - Thursday Dec 1
