Rainbow HR supports a wide range of charities in a number of ways.
Each year a % of our profits is given to charitable causes. In 2019/20 we provided 2% of profits to support Paisley Food Banks, Accord Hospice and Cancer Support Scotland. We purchased air beds for a care home and provided food for the NHS during the Coronavirus. Rainbow HR has sponsored a team for the 2020 Glasgow Kiltwalk and continues to sponsor individuals as they raise valuable funds for a wide range of charities.
We offer significantly discounted rates to not-for profit organisations and have worked with Cancer Support Scotland, Scouts Scotland and Includem.
Charity Heroes was formed in 2018 by Fiona Irvine, Director at Rainbow HR, along with Carol Jenkins and Jannine Russell from Abellio ScotRail. Having successfully organised a range of charity fundraising events to support the Railway Benefit Fund and other nominated charities, the team were joined this year by Emma Hall from Abellio Rail Replacement and events student Lisa Irvine.
Experts in putting on a fantastic event, the Charity Heroes can guarantee a great day out which comes with the feel-good factor of knowing that you’re contributing to raising valuable funds for some amazing charities.
Last year, ‘Abbamania’ attracted over 140 people, who enjoyed an Abba-themed lunch, with pop up shops, great entertainment, amazing prizes and plenty of dancing, all hosted by Clyde One’s Gina McKie. Raising over £6000 for the Railway Benefit Fund and MND Scotland, it was a huge success.
This year, we’re supporting Cancer Support Scotland and Ayrshire Cancer Support, who both do incredible work providing emotional and practical support to those affected by cancer.

To raise some much-needed funds for the two cancer charities that we’re supporting this year; we had planned to host a fundraising event on Saturday 24th October. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the event due to the ongoing restrictions due to covid-19.
For anyone who knows us, you'll not be surprised that we didn't let the restrictions stop us from having a good time and raising some money! Instead of a fancy do, we held a week-long charity auction where we auctioned off some amazing prizes to raise money for the charities. Plus we hosted our very own (online) Christmas Market and Bonus Ball competition on Facebook.
All in all, we were delighted with the result, managing to raise a total of £4,500 which we split between the two charities so each received a £2,250 donation.
We had a brilliant time organising the festivities this year - despite having to do the lot over a bit of a shaky wifi connection!
A huge thank you to all of our sponsors, to everyone who donated prizes, to all our Christmas Market stalls, to everyone who purchased a bonus ball and to everyone who took part in the online auction. We can't thank you enough for all your help and support - thanks to you we've been able to make a sizable donation to both charities at a difficult time.
We'll see you all at the (hopefully) face-to-face event next year! Stay tuned for any updates.
The auction may have come to an end, but there's still time before Christmas to grab some gifts from our Christmas market stalls.
We know how much you all enjoy perusing the market stalls at the annual event so this year we’ve pulled together as many as we can to help you get your Christmas shopping sorted! Each of the stall holders have made a contribution to the charity so a huge thank you to all of you for your support!
