Adventurers & Artists will be raising money for two fantastic charities; Westgate Hall Trust, and The National Autistic Society. Helping us raise money is the Canterbury Christ Church Student Union Raise and Give Society. You can donate here: https://mydonate.bt.com/fundraisers/anaconcert
Canterbury Christ Church Raise and Give (RaG), is a support network towards all fundraising that occurs during university, where we support societies and individuals. We aim to make a difference within our university and the wider community. In order to achieve this, we are running challenges such as, East African Playgrounds, Three Peak, Budapest Marathon, Elephants and Hill Tribe, and Kilimanjaro, with each project having ten or more volunteers. Alongside this we also support aspiring individuals who create events such as this. Our Christmas wish has been to raise £100,000 by the end of the academic year, for a range of different charities, and we are well on our way with around £40,000 being raised from our volunteers and internal and external activities. Our President is also the student union fundraiser, giving us lots of influence throughout the student union. RaG is also willing to change from a society to part of the student union to have more authority over fundraising activities. RaG took an interest in Adventurers & Artists, as one of our members is a member of the CCCU Dungeons and Dragons Society, and was very intrigued by the event. The event is also raising money for an excellent cause to help improve many people’s lives, and by being a part of Adventurers & Artist we can help promote the event and raise more awareness.
