Join us on Sunday 30 June for our “A Slice of Inspiration: Rainbows Afternoon Tea” event with two great speakers!

What you can expect from the A Slice of Inspiration: Rainbows Afternoon Tea

This sell out event is returning for its third year and in 2024 our inspirational speakers will demonstrate that in a world dominated by stereotypes and unconscious bias, you can and will achieve your goals should you be passionate enough to want to do so.

As our inspirational speakers take to the stage, you’ll be able to indulge in a delicious Afternoon Tea, which has been specifically selected by us for this spectacular event.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. All guests will get to enjoy:

  • A welcome drink
  • The chance to win some great prizes in the on-the-day raffle
  • Shop at some independent stalls
  • Learn more about Rainbows and our vital work across the East Midlands, with the chance to hear from our staff and Rainbows families

Can you help us inspire future generations?

If you’re unable to attend the event, we would love it if you could help us inspire future generations. This is why, we’re asking business to sponsor a couple of tickets (or a table), which we can then give to local schools, Guides and other groups for free. If you’d like to support us in this way, please email our Events Fundraiser via [email protected]

*Please note tickets booked online will incur a small booking fee
