RAG week sees Glyndwr University students raise funds for children’s hospice
17 April 2013
Glyndŵr University students competed to see how much chilli sauce they could eat without drinking any water as part of an annual fundraiser.
The university’s Students’ Guild organised a week-long programme of sponsored events to raise cash for Wrexham-based Hope House Children’s Hospice.
A handful of students paid to compete in the Chilli Sauce Challenge in The Centenary Bar, with a mix of chili flakes, chilli sauce and Tabasco sauce being loaded into mouths in a series of rounds as part of the challenge.
Other events included Where’s Wally, where students paid a £1 entry fee to win drinks vouchers by finding Students’ Guild president Adam Fuller dressed as Wally from the children’s book of the same name.
A onsie and duvet day, Mr and Mrs Glyndŵr competition, fundraising car wash, pub crawl and dare day completed the set of events for the Raising and Giving Week.
Adam Fuller, Students’ Guild president, said: “The RAG week has been great fun and knowing that we’ve been raising money for a great local cause all along has been an added bonus.
“Hope House provides a valuable service to families across the region and we’re glad to be able to play a part in helping them out.”
The Students’ Guild has set up a Just Giving page where donations to Hope House can be made online, at www.justgiving.com/glyndwrragweek
