Blind Date

Welcome to Blind Date 2015!

This year, Blind Date is on February 3rd.




What is Blind Date?

Blind Date is one of Cambridge RAG’s biggest fundraising events. It made nearly £13,000 last year for our ten chosen charities, and this year we want it to be better than ever! We help to match students from  across the university (and this year, for the first time, ARU), to help people both find love and to make new friends.

To get involved, you can start by buying a form from your college rep for £5. We offer either a ‘Boy’, ‘Girl’ or ‘LGBTQ+’ option, depending on what you’re looking for, each with the choice of having a classic date, or a non-romantic ‘friend’ date, for those of you who are already attached, or just looking to meet somone new.

Once you (or your friends!) have filled in the form to the best of your abilities, you can hand it back into your rep, and after a little while, you’ll be sent through your dates form. Last year we managed to sell 2,600 forms so you definitely won’t be the only one of your friends getting involved- it’s great fun and a good laugh. Even if you don’t find love, at least you might get a funny story out of it, right?!

The deadline for returning forms to your college rep is the 31st of January- don’t be late!

The Bribe System

Are you particularly fussy? Worried about who you might end up with? Don’t leave it to chance! We offer participants the chance to have a say in who they’re paired with, by offering a bribe to their reps. Depending on how specific you are, prices vary, but as a rough guide:

  •  “Hot” – £3
  • “Blonde M1 rower”- £5
  • “Hannah Williamson”- £10

Remember, the reps only get to decide who you end up with if you bribe!
