Bummit Event

BUMMIT is part of the University’s RAG (Raising and Giving) society, which raises money for local and international charities every year. BUMMIT is a hitchhiking adventure, where participants travel to a specific destination by hitchhiking or “bumming” lifts – hence the name! Established as a one-off trip in 2003, the event has grown every year and is now internationally recognised. Participants are permitted to use public transport, but the spirit of the event is to get lifts from drivers on their way. All the students taking part wear a bright coloured hoodie with details on, and travel in small groups. Each student is expected to raise a minimum of £250 sponsorship.
