Rain clouds have a silver lining


An internet business run by a Plean mum-of-two is making a splash.

When Laura Mackintosh’s second daughter was born three years ago, she realised the time was right for a new career.

Together with her mum, Megan McInulty of Glasgow, she decided to launch Rain-Shine, an online company supplying waterproof clothing for children.

Initially selling all-in-one wet weather suits for toddlers, the business has already grown and now provides a range of waterproofs for all ages, as well as children’s swimwear.

Laura said: “I was a commercial analyst and while on maternity leave found out my job was relocating. It seemed the perfect opportunity to consider a new direction.

“We are amazed how it has really taken off. The emphasis is on getting children fitter and outdoors more, so our waterproof clothing is perfect for that.”

Rain-Shine has also paid sales visits to nurseries and other children’s groups across the country.
