Please ALWAYS check the website (or ask to join my mailing list here) in order to check that the club is running on future dates.
The class fee is £5 (£4 concessions) – and this is a MINIMUM recommended donation – feel free to give more!!! EVERY SINGLE PENNY IS DONATED TO THE CARER PROGRAMME at the Eric Liddell Centre. Edinburgh Laughter Club is a not-for-profit community initiative and ALL money raised goes directly to charity – Jo runs Edinburgh Laughter Club entirely voluntarily and donates her time for no payment whatsoever. Carers go free (if registered with us) and anyone who is struggling financially can donate whatever they can genuinely afford.
After running monthly on a Sunday for almost 3 years at the Healthy Life Centre, with effect from 21st February 2013 we moved to our new home at the Eric Liddell Centre and have been running a weekly Thursday morning Laughter Club there, raising money for the Ca(i)re Programme every week since then. A huge thank you to all our members for making this club a massive success and for raising an astounding average of £2.5K per year!!!
Since April 2014, Carers are able to attend for free* thanks to Scottish Government CIS funding.
* Registration in the “Carers’ Laughter Club Project” is required in order to be eligible for a free place and commitment to regular attendance and evaluation is a pre-requisite.
Donations from laughter club members has seen us raise over £19.5K for the Carer Programme at the Eric Liddell Centre (from February 2013 to January 2020); an average of almost £2,800 a year – AMAZING!!!!!
