30th September 2018
Carnoustie Golf Hotel and Spa
In order to recruit more volunteers across the different areas of Scotland we have 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 and brand within more communities across Scotland and help us reach many more people who have been affected by cancer.
This year on September 30th at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel, Janet Richardson and her three daughters, will be using our template and hosting our Sassy & Classy Ladies Lunch Event. This event has marketed on our social media pages and has been know to sell out within the first 24 hours of marketing. The event is 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.

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 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
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.
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.
