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.

Edward was an absolute delight and the staff were amazing as always. These courses mean the world to be able to spend time with people who just know and understand without anything having to be explained. Thank you all again x
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.
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.
This course has opened my eyes to thinking about ‘ME’ putting myself first. Learning new techniques to relax feel good and have laughter in my life again. As a visually impaired person I was included in every session and facilitators took time to look after me. The only thing I could suggest is enlarge written material were possible, I am fortunate to have some very useful sight and can use a magnifier. I really enjoyed watching Dare to bare was emotional but really good to hear how these ladies had the confidence to get up and strut their stuff. Well done to each and everyone of them. I don’t know if you would consider me for this as I am feeling really confident about myself after 7 steps course. I will definitely recommend this course to others. I will speak to my managers and suggest this course for our staff. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Rainbow Valley for giving me this chance to take part in the course. Also a great big thank you to Betty she is an amazing lady helped relax me also look out for me.
I learned so much about myself and my illness, I also learned about how my life affects my body. Amazing eye opener
