Havin’ A Coffee – October 2017

After the phenomenal success of the Chari-Tea Coffee Morning for Havin’ A Laugh I’ve decided to have another one. This time is just a social one for people to meet for a cuppa and a chat. It’s on Monday 23rd October in The Blind Tiger, Sligo from 10am – 12 noon and all are welcome.

I think there’s a real need for these mornings to meet other friendly faces, of course that said  I might be there on my own this time around! There are so many people struggling with mental health issues – I know – I’m one of them. Or people feeling isolated, lonely or just might be new to the area and in need of a friend. Or bring a friend and make some new friends.

The Havin’ a Laugh Charity promotes Life enhancing activities for positive mental health. Enjoy this monthly social occasion for your own sense of wellbeing and every few months there will be a raffle and fundraiser for the Havin’ a Laugh Charity.

Sincere thanks to everyone who came along or supported the Chari-Tea Coffee morning last month. A whopping €1292.31 was raised which is just amazing! So thank you all so much and of course a thank you to all of the following:

The Blind Tiger – Chris, Sinead, Patricia and Sarah. They were so kind and generous, we ended up taking over the cafe and they didn’t take a cent in payment from us for anything including the drinks.
