The old adage about laughter being the best medicine may not be wholly and scientifically accurate, but as you struggle your way through the last day of the week, you’ll have to agree that the usual Friday feeling, fuelled by the usual raft of funny emails, viral videos and watercooler jokes doing the rounds, does set you up for the weekend.

A good laugh just makes you feel better and it’s something that most of us take for granted.

But across the globe there are millions of people who don’t really have much to laugh about, so that’s where organisations like come in.

At first glance it might not seem like a high-priority good cause, but when you see what it can achieve with its fun-raising events around this troubled world, you might think it's worth a quid or two of your hard-earned cash.

So as you clown around in the office today, spare a thought, and a few beer tokens, for those who might not be smiling.
