RAG (Raising and Giving) is MedSoc's biggest society. We are responsible for some of the biggest events in the MedSoc calendar, including D-RAG, Cabaret, and RAG week. Each year MedSoc members vote for the charities that we raise for to ensure that we're raising for causes that our members care about!

In addition to our social events, we also have one RAG Raid each term. After ‘borrowing’ some DR robes and equipping our all-to-beloved stethoscopes and NHS badges, RAG and our volunteers hit the town to (politely) ask the public to part with their cash for our amazing charities! You’ll see us, blue and loud, from the Pavilion and the seafront to Churchill Square and Brighton train station. In October 2015, we raised a record amount for RAG Raid, surpassing £800 - so next time, we aim to go bigger and better, to make sure RAG truly makes a difference to these charities. Of course, we couldn't raise nearly that much as just the committee and this year we also had a record turnout of over 40 people from years 1-3 to help raise such a large amount of money! We truly appreciate anyone that gives up their time for the RAG Raids and we always try to organise a post-raid dinner or event to thank the volunteers, so get involved!

Finally, like everyone else trying to give your money to a good cause, our committee will often be found selling cakes, coffee, doughnuts and all of the other essentials to medical student life!
