Every year DUSA The Union supports one locally based charity chosen by you. We call this RAG (Raising and Giving).

If you would like to get involved with RAG or show your support just fill out the form at the bottom of this page. All support and donations are greatly appreciated.

RAG 2016/17


This year we received nominations for almost 20 different local charities, which were all reviewed then put to student vote. We are thrilled to announce the winning charity who received the most votes is MS Therapy Center. Located just on Peddie Street, this local charity is dedicated to improving lives of people affected by Multiple Sclerosis. Offers Hyperbolic Oxygen Treatment, physio-therapies and other wide range of non-clinical support, allowing people affected by MS the opportunity to manage their symptoms.

Absolutely thrilled to bits to hear that we had been chosen as DUSA RAG Charity 2016/17. We are a small local charity and this is a fantastic opportunity to help us achieve much needed awareness and funds to provide the ongoing support for people living with MS in the Tayside area.

Help us make RAG bigger and better!

Getting involved in fundraising for a charity, just like any other volunteering activity, is fun and rewarding experience. Over the past few years, DUSA has run a Raising and Giving (RAG) campaign to generate as much money and awareness for a local charity as possible. This year, with introduction of the new Vice President of Fundraising role designed to take RAG off the ground, the campaign will get the attention it truly deserves. One charity selected by students will become our RAG charity of the year and focus of the fundraising campaign.


Raised so far this year!
