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.

Why not join the Havin’ a Laugh tribe and sign up for one of our events below, or if you have an idea for a fundraiser or event that you would like to run, then please contact us and we will be happy to help you.
