Our Sassy and Classy Event has been known to sell out within the first 24 hours of marketing. This is a ladies lunch which includes, a glass of bubbly, a three course meal, entertainment and a chance to win prizes all for just £500 per table of 10 (£50pp). Our host Edward Reid will certainly have you entertained throughout the afternoon. So why not gather your girlfriends and come along to what will be a great event.
In order to recruit more volunteers across Scotland, we launched a DIY Sassy and Classy event. We hope that these events will help us share our message and brand within more communities across Scotland, and help us reach many more people who have been affected by cancer. If you would like to hold your very own Sassy and Classy event, please email Anne@rainbowvalley.org.uk

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.
The mindfulness course was everything I had hoped it would be. Edward is amazing. He makes you laugh and feel good and puts everyone at ease. He takes you from laughter to complete relaxation.
He makes mindfulness make sense and equips you with tools to take home to make it happen in your everyday.
I feel so blessed to have been apart of this experience. I affirmatively and positively was present in the moment and loved every minute of it.
There was a great feeling of being home on arriving at Ardoch. The familiarity instantly made you relax. Seeing familiar faces to welcome you was simply lovely. Having all the beautiful food again was a reminder and a gentle prompt and encouragement to eat a rainbow!
Thank you so so much for all your hard work. Thank you so much to Rainbow Valley for giving my mum and I not only special time together but also for equipping us with knowledge and skills to enhance our lives.
To be part of the Rainbow Valley family is a privilege. – Lou Collins
I’m very much into nourishing my “whole” self. The workshop was very much about that and was very beneficial for me.
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.
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!!”
