The Havin' a Laugh adventure weekend has grown every year and is being fully supported by local activity providers and foodies. It is a testament to all Sligo has to offer in terms of well-being and adventure. The Rennafix Group was established five years ago following the death of a well-loved local adventurer, Paul Rennick. The group have established a new charitable service that is unique nationwide. They provide adventure and wellness vouchers to people in therapy for mental health related reasons. It is proven that getting outdoors, exercising and engaging in healthy social events improves an individual's overall mental health and boosts their resilience.

The Havin’ a Laugh festival was designed to showcase the many adventure and wellness activities available in Sligo and the Northwest of Ireland. It is a not for profit event with all profits that are generated being invested back into the community via the Rennafix service. They have created a platform from which those who have the get-up- and-go can support those struggling to maintain that drive.
