Joe 'Waffle' Wassell: RAG Officer 

Hi everyone, my name is Joe Wassell and I am the Raising and Giving Officer for the Student Guild 17/18. I am currently studying a BA (Hons) degree in Business Enterprise. Although challenging at times to balance my university life as well as a Part-Time job, I am thoroughly enjoying my time at UCB; it is a place where I look forward to spending my time and have met friends who I will no doubt know for the rest of my life.

As the Raising and Giving Officer, it is my job to organise and run various charitable events throughout the year. I will provide the platform for charitable organisations to come into the university and spread their message of awareness, which will inform you on how you support the charities and give students a chance to contact them if they are in need of the charities help.

In the time that I have been attending UCB, I have found that the same methods have been used to engage you guys with certain charities. During my time as Raising and Giving Officer I want to bring a bit of variety to how not only we raise money for these charities but also how we get their message across to the student population, through social media and a variety of different events. All of which are currently being planned out.

If you every want to have a chat with me about anything charity related, Guild related or you just need a friendly face to have a chat with, I will be in the Guild Office in McIntyre House every Tuesday 10am till 3pm. You may also find me around the other buildings in UCB. So don’t hesitate to stop me and have a chat.

Failing both of those options, you can email me on or you can leave me a message with any of the guild officers and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all around the University, see you soon!
