RAG Approved Charities

Because Winchester Student Union is in itself a charitable organisation, it is legally required to keep a 'list' of all charities which its members support. This includes charities supported by sports, societies, representational networks and individual students using Winchester Student Union facilities or resources. 


Can a new charity be added to the list?


YES. If you want to support a charity that currently isn't on the RAG List, please email winchrag@gmail.com with a brief description of what the charity does and it's UK charity registration number (the charity usually provides this somewhere on its website). The RAG Society holds regular 'List Review Meetings' where requests for new charities are considered. You will be notified if your chosen charity has been added to the list.
