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 bigger and better than ever! We help to match students from across the university 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. 2016 saw the first year of the gender neutral form, which allows buyers to choose the gender they identify with, as well as their sexual preference, depending on what you’re looking for, PLUS the form has the option of having a classic date, or a non-romantic ‘friend’ date, for those of you who are already attached, or just looking to meet someone 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 by pigeon hole. Last year we managed to sell 2,750 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 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!

The form on the left is an example of a previous RAG Blind Date form, which are normally super fun to fill in – and many people get their friends to fill them in! Please collect your forms from your college RAG reps.
Please do remember that RAG has a no-tolerance policy on racism or any other prejudice of any form, on any of the form & bribe entries: they will not be accepted & there will be no refunds.
