History of RAG at Keele
RAG has been established at Keele University 1956 RAG day consisted of a long procession of decorated vehicles and floats around Newcastle and Stoke, accompanied by student collectors in fancy dress. There were bucket collections and sales of a “humorous” magazine called WOOP! Stunts, whether planned or impromptu, were a regular feature.
RAG gradually lost momentum until it was resurrected by a student called Danny Walker, who went on to be an Elected Officer in 2013.
