We're collecting once again this year! Our fundraising bucket is now doing the rounds at Amba Hotel Charing Cross after every show between now and November. At the same time, we're collecting at selected venues on our UK tour starting at Edinburgh Fringe and Wales Millennium Centre Cardiff.

We'd like to say a huge thank you to our generous audiences who this year donated £11,061.71 for BBC Children in Need. With Basil, Sybil and Manuel rattling tins at Edinburgh Fringe, Amba Hotel Charing Cross, Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff and The Lowry in Salford, how could they resist! Thank you all once again ;-)

... 2014

The only way is up! Fundraising efforts this year raised more than any year since we started collecting: thanks to audiences and cast members, we’ve paid in a fabulous £11,263.17.

This year’s campaign collected at B’est Restaurant during Edinburgh Fringe, The Lowry in Salford, Cardiff’s Wales Millennium Centre, Birmingham REP, Brighton Thistle Hotel and our ongoing London West End residency at Amba Hotel Charing Cross. Thank you all from all of us!

... 2013

Thanks to audience and cast members, we raised a whopping £8,989.59 for the 2013 appeal!

We launched into collections from our London West End residency, then continued at Edinburgh Fringe, The Lowry, Lighthouse Poole, Wales Millennium Centre, and The Birmingham REP.

... 2012

Audiences around the UK were cajoled in redoubtable fashion by Basil, Sybil and Manuel to part with their pennies – and together gave £7,200 to this year’s BBC Children in Need appeal.

This year they collected from audiences in five venues in August and September:

- B’est Restaurant (Edinburgh Fringe)
- Mayflower Theatre, Southampton
- The Lowry, Salford
- The Lighthouse, Poole
- Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff

... 2011

This year the cast has raised just over £3337 for the BBC Children in Need Appeal.

Basil, Sybil and Manuel started collecting after their shows at the Edinburgh Festival and carried on during a month-long season in October in London’s West End.

... 2010

The cast of the international hit show Faulty Towers The Dining Experience has raised just over £2008 for the BBC Children in Need Appeal.

Basil, Sybil and Manuel started collecting at the Edinburgh Festival in August and carried on until 6 November, the end of this year’s UK tour. The cash was counted under the eyes of Michael Porter, manager of R.S. Hispaniola, their London show venue.

... 2009

During the 2009 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the cast raffled off a Gnome. Basil walked everywhere with the Gnome, and Sybil ensured that tickets were sold at all 40 festival performances. The winner was Mrs Joan Nicol of Dumferline, and the gnome was presented to her at her home.

The team raised £1000 and the proceeds were delivered to BBC Manchester. Watch the fun they had during the handover on our flims page.
