Support us at university

Team A volunteers

Are you studying at university and looking for a great cause to support? Whether you’re an individual, student group or RAG committee, we have a number of ways you can get involved!

Rag raids and street collections

Rag raids and street collections are a great way to raise vital funds. Could you spare a couple of hours to hold a collection at your local supermarket, shopping centre or train station? Every penny really does count does count and it’s simple to support Arthritis Research UK and have fun at the same time.

We can help you to fill out any permit applications and provide materials such as T-shirts and buckets.

Find out more about holding a collection.

Fundraising ideas

Our Guide to fundraising is full of great advice on all aspects of organising your own event, including a step-by-step guide, inspirational fundraising ideas and useful hints and tips.

You can also download a range of ‘How To’ guides that provide you with more information about ways to get involved, including our Miles Together guide for any walking, cycling or swimming enthusiasts and our Knitter Natter booklet for any knitting society members.

Volunteering opportunities

Volunteering looks great on your CV and is a chance to develop and share your skills. We have a range of volunteering roles that you can get involved with during your studies. For more information or to sign up, visit volunteer with us.
