Do you love to laugh?
Do you have funny stories to share?

Be part of ‘Sharing Laughter’
Come along and share your funny stories and enjoy other sharers. Don’t be shy, we all have a funny story to tell or know someone funny to bring along. They can be stories about anything - holidays, families, friends, work, pets - any story so long as it makes you smile. Two hours of fun and plenty of biscuits – oh and the bar will open to get you in the mood!

I’m Natasha Wood and I am about to be featured as ‘The Laughter Sharer’, in a globally published book called Generation Share. Born and bred in Nottingham I toured my one-woman stage play ‘Rolling with Laughter’ in the UK and USA. I don’t have the strength to pick up a cup of tea and my tushie resides in an electric wheelchair but I believe that ‘Laughter is the greatest medicine of all time’ – and what’s more its free.

THE BOOK BACKGROUND:
WE ARE WHAT WE SHARE! This is the belief and passion of two extraordinary women. Speaker, writer and campaigner, Benita Matofska, and award-winning photographer, Sophie Sheinwald, joined forces and co-created The Generation Share Project. Together these ladies went on a journey to photograph and document wonderful stories, of people all over the world who are creating a society based around sharing, making a huge difference and saving lives.
The book has over 100 photos and stories of global change-makers, who believe passionately about sharing human and physical resources: from homes, food and goods, to knowledge, skills and ideas. It’s a positive book to enjoy and be inspired by and, in the current challenging times that we face, give us hope.
I feel extremely privileged to be featured alongside extraordinary people who have a passion to ‘share’:
‘The Fashion Sharer’ from Amsterdam who set up a library for clothes. Wear it, enjoy it and then swap it.
‘The Football Sharer from Mumbai, born in one of the biggest slums of Mumbai, Ashok founded OSCAR, an organisation that provides afterschool programmes using football to attract, educate and empower underprivileged children.
‘The Human Milk Bank Sharers’ from the UK who set up ‘Hearts’ saving the lives of premature and sick babies by sharing the resource that is human milk.
