This year on August 27th at The Boclair House Hotel in Bearsden we held our very first Sassy & Classy Ladies Lunch Event. The event was marketed on our social media pages and we sold out within the first 24 hours of marketing. The event was a huge success for Rainbow Valley, both in terms of fundraising (event raised just over £10k) and awareness raising, as we asked our captive audience of 150 female guests to tweet, Instagram and Facebook as many selfies and #'s of Rainbow Valley and the Sassy & Classy event as possible. We have had amazing feedback from our guests, which has led to many future fundraising opportunities for us. We know that we can build on this event for next year as many of guests able who attended this year’s event have expressed an interesting returning to the next one.
In order to recruit more volunteers across the different areas of Scotland we have also launched our Sassy & Classy DIY event. This follows an ask on the day, that our supporters organise their own lunch/dinner/drinks/cocktail party events and get their own networks involved. Rainbow Valley's fundraising team will be on hand to help support these events by sending on helpful event planner template's and budget planner templates, as well as being available on the phone to deal with any enquiry's our Sassy & Classy DIY event teams might have. We hope that these events will help us share our message & brand within more communities across Scotland and help us reach many more people who have been affected by cancer.

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. The time with Rainbow Valley benefited us more than all other help collectively over the last 11 years.
I wasn’t sure what the future held for me, now I know that I can directly influence my future by living well and I have the tools to deal with anything the future holds for me. Thank you!
LOVED this course. Edward was so informative but not full of jargon. He made me understand Mindfulness really easily. He has such a talent of making you feel relaxed at times, then make you cry with laughter the next!
He took time for each and every one of us and genuinely cared about how we were feeling. Just wished it was longer!
As usual, I came away feeling invigorated and loved
I really enjoyed the whole course in general, I felt everything had its place on the course and it was well planned out. Karen Phil & Betty were fabulous and took such great care of us. Also wee Ann and the chef were fabulous. We both left on an absolute high. Thanks again.
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.
