Got some time you’d like to put to good use? If you want to advocate change, work with leading charitable organisations and use your time at university to change lives for the better, volunteer!
As well as working with local projects and organisations that are looking for volunteers, you can also join MDX RAG (Raising and Giving). RAG is a super social society which fundraises for charity through events and activities - you'll probably end up on a RAG pub crawl on two during your time at MDX! RAG also volunteer both locally and abroad, organising 4-6 week volunteering trips to countries across the globe. Fancy volunteering in Uganda or Tanzania next summer? Get involved with RAG!
RAG was formed at Middlesex in 2011/12 and since then has established itself as one of the fastest growing societies, won a national award, and raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity. Middlesex RAG (Raising and Giving) run many events throughout the year, from jailbreaks to Colour Runs, with international challenges as well as UK based ones. Next year, RAG will be heading to Uganda, Romania, Thailand and Tanzania - including climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. These all include activities such as helping build, paint or renovate a local school to teaching English and working in an orphanage.
