Give It A Go

Give It A Go is an exciting programme of events, trips and activities which allows you to take part and try something a little bit different - without making a long term commitment!

You can experience anything from learning self defence, playing golf, going go-karting or even doing massage!

Raise and Give (RaG)

Over the year we run several RAG events in which we raise money for various causes. Over the year we are looking for students who are willing to take part in the fundraising.

Helping out can range from taking part in events to volunteering your time to be on a fund raising stall. It is a fun time for all involved - and all for a worthy cause!
