Rainbow Valley had a very succesful year for Kiltwalk in 2017. Like many Scottish charities this was our first year being involved in The Kiltwalk Event. We managed to recruit a team of 20 participants over the three walk distances for the Glasgow event. We raised an amazing £6300 through this event! £2300 of which was raised by one of our long standing corporate supporters MBM print.
We would love your help to make Glasgow Kiltwalk's Rainbow Valley 2018 team even bigger to help us raise £20,000 for anyone affected by cancer.
If you think you have what it takes to be part of Rainbow Valley's Kiltwalk 2018 team and walk 6,14 or 23 miles through the streets of Glasgow from Glasgow Green to Loch Lomond then contact the fundraising team now on ......

Given that my recent diagnosis was the second time for me, I have been under the “cancer care umbrella for a decade now and in all that time, I have never once been given the opportunity to attend anything like the experience we had with Rainbow Valley. This is particularly surprising as my cancer receives more publicity and funding than any other cancer type in the world! I do receive a magazine twice a year from one charity and have attended a talk on fertility issues and been given details of local mindfulness classes. Whilst I am sure invaluable support and advice is provided for many people by the bigger charities, this has not been my experience. We were astounded with the level of support and advice we received from Rainbow Valley, especially as they funded my husband to attend also. The 3 days we attended their seven steps to health course benefited us more than all other help collectively over the last 11 years. It is amazing that a relatively young charity without the benefit of the huge marketing budgets enjoyed by the high profile charities are able to achieve this.
Where do I start? I can’t say enough good things about my stay at Ardoch House for the 7 Steps to Health Course. I mean this from the bottom of my heart – It was so many things – a great atmosphere, relaxing, positive, so helpful, comfortable, comforting, inspiring, happy, fun, with loads of laughter thrown in for good measure and it just lifted my spirits tremendously! The staff members without exception, made us all feel so very welcome and it was obvious they were sincere and very caring people. You have a lovely team and “What a tonic!!”
Rainbow Valley provide the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. As the relative of someone with the diagnosis it was a break in the most comfortable, stunning and relaxing environment. It allowed the bottled up emotions that you didnt know were there a means of escape. It allowed you as a person a means of escape. There was no poor me. But a learning experience of how to be good to me. It equipped you with skills to move forward. It was not a clinic, nor a ward or an appointment. It was not a hospital. It was a holistic nourishment and a positive step forward. It was time to be together.
