Seven days to raise as much money as possible… We cover the goings on of RAG WEEK 2013.


RAG Week has come again… It is the annual event to raise money for charity while having a serious amount of charitable fun!

This year’s four core charities are Ty Hafan, Nightline, Refuge and the MS Society.

RAG are putting on events all week so that as many of us as possible can get involved. What’s more, the Cardiff RAG team are still looking for people to take part in every event over the whole week.

Events for the week are as follows:

Are you a single pringle and ready to mingle? If so you need to get yourself down to the union on Monday night for a real life version of the hit dating TV show ‘Take Me Out’. There’s sure to be loads of alcohol consumed to get everyone through the night.

Tuesday sees a three legged race to Cardiff bay, starting at the Union at about 7 o’clock. Also taking place is ‘The Ultimate Pub Quiz’ starting at 7:30pm, down at The Vulcan. RAG are also offering the chance to win a few free drinks, so if it’s totally worth checking out.

In classic Cardiff fashion, Wednesday sees RAG WEEK take to The Lash…

On Thursday there is set to be a ‘Student v Food’ night, over in CF10, where you’ll be able to bet on competitors and be in with the chance of yet more free booze.

Friday is a day of clowning around for RAG… If you know someone who has a fear of clowns, you can hilariously sign them up to be followed around by a big, scary clown ALL day. To finish things off, there is set to be a RAG raffle at 3pm with the chance to win £1,000.

Then, on the biggest night of the week: Saturday, there is set to be a charity hitch hike… Every team will be dropped off at a secret location in the UK and it’s a race to make it back to Comeplay… Whilst completing a series of challenges on the way! The Tab wishes them well.
