Over the next five days, UCD Students' Union will be hosting over 30 events in the hopes of raising over €20,000 for four Irish charities.

All funds raised will go to Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland, Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, the Peter McVerry Trust and a fund for survivors of the Berkeley tragedy last summer.

UCD Students' Union pledged to raise €100,000 for Youth Suicide Prevention Ireland last November and have since raised €32,760 by organising a mass charity skydive and a naked charity calendar

We've had huge success fundraising so far with the skydive and naked calendar. We want to draw attention to what we're doing. We'll be all over Dublin today in a huge bucket collection

So, want to help them reach their target for these very good causes? 

Dig deep when you see any of the UCDSU bucket collectors across the city today! Or, alternatively you can head along to any of their RAG week events, including an on-campus drag show tomorrow - check out the full schedule here.

G'wan the lads!
