Rag held their annual fundraising event and it certainly went out with a bang (sorry).

This year, Rag raised explosive amounts for local charities in the Leicestershire area. Huge history was made in the name of giving on Saturday 7th November, with a record breaking £26,612.87 raised on the night!11036411_779356872174165_874630015380507680_n

In total, 5,527 people attended the show which included an incredible display of fireworks, fairground rides, stalls and a stunning new projection and light display on the Hazlerigg building. You can watch it again here and also see LSUTV’s Fireworks video here.

The event ran for 3 hours in total, and VP: Rag, Rachael Lynch said:

“This has been Rag’s biggest and most successful event yet! We were also selling poppies on the night from the fountain display, which made nearly £500 in itself.”

Special thanks go especially to the following:

Danny Harvey and Jonny King – Internal Event Coordinators

Rag Committee

The team within LSU Media who also coordinated sound, light and held an LCR radio show throughout the night;

Ryan Onions – Video Producer

Media Administrator – Chris Moore

With an amount as crazy as £26,612.87, it’s a tough target to beat, but will no doubt be a challenge Loughborough will welcome with open arms for next year! Bring it on.
