Sam Rehan found laughter after a difficult period of events in her personal life and it supported her health. She trained to become a Laughter Wellbeing Facilitator. She has led laughter sessions in schools, with disability groups, community groups, private events and on a one-to-one basis. She remembers one event, when she facilitated laughter with a man with dementia, who had lost his speech but was overjoyed that he could laugh together with others in the group session. Sam uses laughter in the workplace to foster team building, employee engagement with increased wellbeing.

For one evening only join our stellar cast of YWI committee members, plus special guest stars, on an epic night of Murder and Mystery as together we journey to…
It’s January. The Swiss Alps. Eight friends travel from around the globe for their annual reunion at a luxury mountain retreat. But before long they are snowed in and tempers begin to flare. By dawn, someone will be dead – murdered in cold blood by one of their closest friends. But who will be killed…and who will do the killing?
With a script packed full of danger, intrigue and unexpected twists – and a cast worthy of top billing at the next annual Razzies awards – expect a truly dramatic evening! The plot is peppered with red herrings and unexpected twists to keep even the sharpest amateur detectives guessing: will yours be the cunning mind that solves the heinous murder and identifies the evil murderer?
With some suitably warming mountain refreshments to soften the icy chill of cold-blooded murder, it will certainly be a night quite unlike any other.
If you would like to attend as a guest the cost is £5.
Deborah Herbert from The Allergy Testing Clinic will be doing a talk on food sensitivities. If there are any foods that they’d like to bring along on the night for testing, she’ll try to do as many as she can in the time given.
