Students at the University of Buckingham raised an incredible £3,500 for charity during their Rag Week in August from a number of events including a human auction, a duck race down the river Great Ouse and a fine for all students not wearing hats or appropriate Rag clothes.

Assistant manager at Buckingham’s Scope shop, Ollie Lambourne, who received a cheque for £1,750 for Scope from the students, said: “We’re so grateful to the univeristy for choosing to support Scope during Rag Week.”

The remaining money is being donated to the Little Princess Trust, a charity providing wigs for children who have lost their hair through chemotheropy.

Student Union president Adebayo Razak said: “The idea is to enable lives to be touched and dreams to turn to reality.”
