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.

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
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.
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
The support given by all was second to none all from rainbow valley made me feel valued and important , fabulous group of dedicated people !
I learned so much about myself and my illness, I also learned about how my life affects my body. Amazing eye opener
