Towards the end of last year the Library teamed up with the University’s RAG (Raising and Giving) society to help raise money for a number of local and international good causes including Isaac’s House, Devon Rape Crisis Service, Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children, Force Cancer Charity, Exeter Community Action, The Eddystone Trust and Cancer Research UK. On the Friday of RAG week we gave Library users the chance to donate any fines on their account to RAG charities rather than paying them in the usual way.
Thanks to the generosity of Exeter University Staff and Students we raised a grand total of £353.65 for RAG. Library Customer Services manager, Kathy Baro, was pleased to pass this amount to RAG Committee members during a handover at the Forum Library.
Thanks to all who contributed by donating fines to RAG’s array of worthy causes.
