Administrative / Biographical History

RAG Week is an annual fundraising event, raising money for different charities. In the late 1960s until 1970 the Borough Polytechnic contributed to a joint RAG Week organised by London colleges. After the creation of the Polytechnic of the South Bank it organised its own RAG Weeks.
