Havin A Social Coffee Morning
HAL Student Event

This is a monthly social coffee morning for anyone looking for some company with their coffee. One of our Havin’ a Laugh hosts will greet newcomers and get you seated. You can sit back and listen in on the chats or join in at your leisure.

For this gathering you pay for your coffee as normal with optional donations towards the Havin’ a Laugh charity, providing life-enhancing activities to people in mental health recovery.

Calm in the Chaos Wellness evening is an event based around life-enhancing activities and services available in the Sligo community.

Students 4 Havin’ A Laugh have organised this event and it will offer three sessions to choose from, including 30-45 minute interval tasters of Zumba with Barbara Aluk, Yoga with Nikky Millar, Tai Chi with Shane McMunn, and Workshops from Anne-Marie Southcombe and Alan Williams.

All profits made from the event will go directly to Havin’ A Laugh Charity.
