Donating to  

Rather than selling tickets for "Lockdown in Little Grimley" we asked our live and online audiences if they would be prepared to make a donation via our "Caritas donation" page on the website to the Caritas charity.

The Caritas beider Basel organisation helps people in poverty in Basel and the region as well as around the world (click here for details). You may be surprised to learn that more than half a million people were already living in poverty in Switzerland before COVID-19, and the pandemic is now threatening to push many of them into crisis.

We are delighted to say that our invited audiences for the two live shows have donated  710 Swiss Francs

A grateful thankyou to you all.
