Our Coffee Morning

Through our monthly chats on our online coffee morning, we are often inspired by the topics that come up.

These topics can range from the joys of being a pet owner, the pros and cons of parachute jumping, and some personal stories that are shared with messages that have helped us all.

In our blog, we share those pieces that made us smile or think for a while.

We hope they might inspire conversations of your own…

The Book 2020 ~ Open Call

Havin' a Laugh charity is bringing out a book and we’d love for you to be involved. We are looking for your funny, uplifting and turning point stories, poems jokes, illustrations & photos. All Welcome!


Our mission is to assist with the promotion of positive mental health through life-enhancing activities, connecting people and Havin’ a Laugh. We create events for everyone that showcase the excellent life-enhancing activities available to us in the Northwest of Ireland.

We believe that those of us who are ‘up for it and at it’ can inspire those who may not yet have that drive, and by taking part in one of our awareness events, you will get the added benefits of becoming more energised, clear-headed and relaxed.
