MAKING CONNECTIONS, CREATING SUPPORT & HAVIN’ A LAUGH

Havin’ a Laugh The Book!

Thank you so much to everyone involved in making Havin’ a Laugh The Book. The Book is finally here and we’re very excited!

The Book is a collection of great stories, jokes, poems, art and imagery that will inspire and delight. It’s a wonderful book that you can easily dip in and out of and it would also make a wonderful gift.

We are delighted to announce that we have been listed #4 on the RTE recommended books for mental health!

VIRTUAL EVENTS

The Chair Yoga Collection

These community Chair Yoga sessions were started in November of 2020 to provide support to our community with accessible and soothing practices.

Virtual Coffee Morning – Mondays

For the duration of this time when it is not possible to meet in person we will be having a Virtual Coffee Morning the first Monday of every month at 11am through the ‘Zoom Cloud Meetings’ App.

Havin’ a Laugh: Life behind ‘The Book’

At Havin' a Laugh we are delighted to be taking part in the First Fortnight Mental Health Art & Culture Festival this year.

ABOUT US

Due to the ever increasing awareness of the positive effects of exercise, the outdoors and community-based activities on Emotional and Mental Health, Rennafix endeavours to subsidize life-enhancing activities to community groups and those seeking counselling and/or therapy.

Havin’ a Laugh Charity was established by Rennafix Group to promote positive mental health through life-enhancing activities. We are dedicated to the promotion of life-enhancing activities as essential tools for personal emotional stability and positive mental health.

We fund-raise through the creation of events that showcase the life-enhancing activities available in our locality. The ethos of the organisation is that those who are ‘up for it and at it’ have a platform from which they can support those who do not have that drive. Understanding that any community or group of friends is only as strong as its weakest member.

Coffee Morning 6th September 2021

/
As usual, the conversation at the Havin’ a Laugh Coffee Morning was full of variety. Most of the conversation centered on things we do in our spare time, from kayaking, to painting, to travelling and, of course, seeing as it was a morning with only women, online shopping.

Coffee Morning 9th August 2021

/
A wide variety of topics were discussed at this month’s Coffee Morning, with the majority of the conversation about available Mental Health services. We also had a visit from Riona Rochford from the Volunteer Centre in Sligo, who had lots of great information on Volunteering. Inevitably, given the fact that we are Irish, the coffee morning started with a chat about the weather.

Coffee Morning 5th July 2021

/
July’s Havin’ a Laugh Coffee Morning was another morning well spent. Lots of issues were discussed in the informal yet informative chat. The thing that struck me about this coffee morning and the last is that everyone is always respectful of one another during discussions.
