Reaseheath RAG

Each year our students select a local charity to raise funds for throughout the academic year. A highlight of the student calendar is RAG (Raising and Giving) Week. Our students raise lots of money for charity through raft races, socials, town centre collections, helping at community events and much, much more!

RAG Week has formed a large focal point of the academic year for Reaseheath students since 1987. To date, the appeals have raised over £230,000 for worthy local causes, and we need your help to raise that figure much higher during this year. Our highest achievement was during the 2015/2016 academic year, raising £26,361 for the British Heart Foundation.

If you’d like to volunteer to help and get involved in some fundraising events contact any member of the Student Association Executive Committee, who will let you know where to be and when! You can also get in touch with the Student Life team via email –


This academic year we are delighted to be supporting Visyon.

Visyon is a charity that supports the emotional health of children, young people and their families in the cheshire and staffordshire moorlands areas.

If you are a child or young person, Visyon can help you improve your mental health so that you feel better about yourself and the things that happen in your day-to-day life. If you are a parent, grandparent or carer, you can come to us to gain the skills to give your child the support they need.
