of things you can do to help
Attend an event
From Sassy and Classy to our Rainbow Valley Ball, dress up, attend a fabulous event and support Rainbow Valley.
Bring and buy
We bet you’ve got loads of junk in your attics and under your bed. Why not raise some money (and clear your house) by organising a Bring and Buy sale. You could even charge other people to set up their own stalls.
Challenge yourself to take part in an event that takes you right out of your comfort zone – a 10k run, an abseil, a hike – you’ll feel amazing and raise vital funds at the same time.
A donation, however small, is always really appreciated by Rainbow Valley. Hit the donate button today.
Every coin counts
Collect silver or gold coins at your workplace and ask customers, suppliers or friends and family to do the same. Every coin counts!
Find and follow us on Instagram, facebook and twitter.
Not something we’d normally say at Rainbow Valley. Usually our mantra is ‘never give up’, but this is in a good way. Give up a vice – Whether it be smoking, alcohol, social media or your daily chocolate bar – get sponsored to give it up for a set period – or ask people to sponsor you per day. You’ll feel healthier plus you’ll raise lots of cash.
We are all about health here at Rainbow Valley. Make small changes to become more healthy – your body will thank you for it. Say goodbye to the lift, swap your chocolate for cherries, your sweeties for strawberries and see how amazing you feel.
Do you have a story to tell? Do you have a top tip for health during or after cancer? Share your experience and help other people in a similar situation as yourself.
Just do it.
Jump in and do something that scares you every day – be all you can be.
Take part in the fabulous Kiltwalk as part of Team Rainbow Valley. Choose from 13 or 26 miles and every penny raised in sponsorship will be matched with an extra 40% from the Hunter Foundation.
Laughing clubs are some of the most popular wellness clubs right now – why not start your own and charge a small fee for people to join? This is feel-good fundraising at its best.
Could you run a marathon? You would certainly deserve to be sponsored if you did –we’ll support you with training guide, t shirts etc.
Rainbow Valley to be the chosen charity for your workplace, golf club or school dress down day.
Spend time outside – being within nature is good for mind, body and soul. We need vitamin D to help fight infection, fresh air will help your mind to focus and relax, and you will sleep better. What’s not to love?
Pack a bag
Could you help with bag packing at your local supermarket? We are always looking for smiley happy people to join our army of volunteers.
Why not organise a quiz night in your local pub? Gather teams, charge an entry and maybe a small raffle on the night.
Regular giving is a powerful and important form of support. It can be done monthly, quarterly or biannually. To become a regular giver, all you have to do is sign up online or contact us and we will arrange to deduct the donation amount of your choice from your credit or debit card on a date that works best for you.
