ICU RAG are pleased to announce a breakthrough in their fundraising efforts with the Tsunami appeal reaching £3500 and receiving a letter from non other than Brian May, Imperial alumni and Queen guitarist.
Upon receipt of this letter Atul Rana, RAG legend and eternal student, declared loudly ?We are the Champions? before been hit violently for using such an aweful pun. Atul deserves special mention for having the flash of inspiration to write to Mr May?s PR company to get his support.
Sid Singh commented to Atul that ?No one but you could be this lucky? before cursing the fact that the next Guildsheet currently consists of 8 blank pages with a title.
John Collins, CGCU President and ex-RAG Treasurer commented ?Now I?m here? but this is believed to be in relation to the meeting he was arriving late for at the time.
In his letter Mr May wrote:
?My own memories of student life at IC are still strong enough to understand that life in college doesn?t leave a lot of spare cash. But even small contributions make a difference?
Upon receipt of the letter, RAG Treasurer Robin Avery emerged from a pile of copper coins and shouted ?I want to break free? and ran to the bank who refused to take all the money, declaring, ?come on RAG, play the game, let us know when your bringing such large sums in small coinage?.
RAG Vice Chair accused the chair of being a ?Liar?, but then was later forced to accept that the letter was real.
Mascotry officer John James was heard to mutter ?It?s a miracle? before cursing his bicycle as he found yet another puncture in the inner tube.
The letter comes as a welcome boost to the RAG committee who are currently under pressure with the tsunami appeal and preparations for rag week and is particularly unusual as the RAG post has recently contained large amounts of publicity material and a condom from the information and advice centre, which unusually for RAG lead to no innuendo.
