On 9 February staff, students and the community of the University of Pretoria took hands to
give back and make an impact in the community around us.
A fun filled day with music, sport, food and a craft market kept UP students well busy and
gave everyone the opportunity to use their gifts and talents for a good cause. Along with
residences, day houses, faculty houses and CANSA, UP RAG supported and raised funds for
more than 20 different charities.
The event was a huge success and we had round about 8000 people coming through the
gates to visit the event and show support. UP Student Culture ensured that the
entertainment was fun filled with their UP’s Got Talent competition hosted on the day and
the products sold by the residence, day house and faculty house partnerships left everyone
excited for a year of giving back and doing our part for the community.
We experienced a sense of togetherness on this day and giving back and the UP community
truly showed that together we are stronger.
