Am attending a boot camp and have been asked to take Wet weather clothing (top and bottom).  Have been searching for some items that are not going to make me sweat like a pig or so at least the sweat  can escape rather than having a pool of it by your elbows!!

 Any recommendations on makes/types?

I have Gore Running jacket that's lasted a couple of years with almost constant wear during the colder/ wetter months. Quality is very good but comes at a price. I find if it's raining and the temps aren't so low, just getting a sleeveless jacket (gilet) is much better. Your body stays dry but you don't overheat. For this, I use something cheaper from Decathlon.

Look at the waterproof section on Pete Bland's website - fell runners normally take waterproofs onto the hills as emergency backup.

Paclite or eVent waterproofs are great.

I'd look in outdoor shops, they tend to have more variety on waterproofs for hiking, cross country running etc.
