Don’t have a Blue Monday

Tomorrow is Blue Monday, apparently the most depressing day of the year. Christmas is over, the decorations are down, the bank accounts are empty, the days are short and the weather is shite…..but it doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom.

Our Havin’aLaugh coffee morning is on tomorrow at The Blind Tiger, Stephen’s Street car park, Sligo from 10am – 12 noon. Come along for a social meet-up for a coffee and a chat. All are very welcome. Bring a friend or meet a new friend. You pay for whatever drink/food you want and if you want to donate a few bob to the charity that would be wonderful too. The Havin’ a Laugh Charity promotes Life enhancing activities for positive mental health. Enjoy this monthly social occasion for your own sense of well-being and every few months there will be a raffle and fundraiser for the Havin’ a Laugh Charity.

Hope to see some of you there.
