Xmas Kudos

Xmas Kudos

There’s no question that it’s been quite a year, and it feels more important than ever that we celebrate the things and people that have helped us get through 2020, and perhaps even put a smile on our faces. 

Everyone loves a compliment and we’d like to give each other a little boost. So if someone you know has done or said something to make you feel good, please use the form below to share your thanks. 

You can submit anonymously if you wish, and thank as many people / events / objects near you as you like!

One huge bonus from this year has been the opportunity to explore the local area, with a couple of miles of home, and discovering various little gems for places to walk.


Thanks to Pure John for setting up all those events for the online comedy festival. I have no idea how you managed it!

Huge thanks to everyone who performed in or watched any of online comedy festival events.


Thank You Nick for sorting out all of the Zoom stuff.

I’m glad Kathleen started the MissImp Walking group to keep me going out to meet folks

I’d like to thank all of our new exec members, who are helping to make admin more bearable.


I’d like to thank everyone in our community who has taken the time to check in on someone else.

Thanks for being so welcoming, having only attended a couple of events/workshops in the real world before lockdown!
Thanks for your patience and encouragement as I’ve started figuring out improv and the gorilla burger games!

I’ve been fortunate enough to spend quite a lot of time with Jen this year, and it’s been great. I’ve really enjoyed all of our meals, walks et al, and such meetups have really helped to alleviate the isolation. Thank you Jen!


To my fellow Chubby Foxes, it was a delight to share the Playhouse stage with you in February. I hope we get to share a stage again soon!


This gang of miscreants have been the large part of the reason I’ve stayed sane (ish) this year. I’d like to thank the exec for working hard to keep MissImp going and everyone else who showed their face at events for helping me see some lovely faces. 2021 won’t be instantly better, but I hope we’re moving towards a position where life can get back to more normality. Love.

Thank you to all the pets who appeared during Zoom meetings – you were definitely a highlight!

To everyone who has taken to the online nature of everything in 2020, thank you for removing the obstacle that is living at the wrong end of the A50. You have all made me feel more a part of the MissImp community than I had thought possible.


Cheers to the Virtual Pub for making me feel like part of the Missimp community!

I’m really proud of all of the love and support our community has shown each other

This year has given me the confidence to talk to people on video calls.

Thanks to John AKA the Larklord for giving the contestants amusing tasks to keep them occupied in the dreary winter months. It was a fun way to spend some time and my housemates now officially think I am weird.


I’m grateful to have been able to work through the year and weirdly it’s improved my relationships with everyone I work with.

To Nick and Marilyn for hosting the pub every single week. In the darkest days when the world had turned on its head, the one day of the week I could be sure about was a Thursday. I hope you both realise just how much you helped so many people. Here’s to real life drinks as soon as possible x

Thank you to everyone who showed up to the Zoom Gorilla Burgers and provided amazing scenes and many laughs. Also thanks to anyone who came up with new ways of making “Zoomprov” work (John with Larklord, Dave with the Museum lectures to name just a couple). It always reminded me that there was a world out there after months at home.


I’m deeply grateful to the Thursday virtual pub mob for giving me a reason to know what day of the week it is. Also, coloured lights, maps, kayaks and Zoom noughts & crosses.

MissImp has helped me remain same in this difficult year

The treats on the vegan market – thanks Kathleen!

Three Weeks

Hi There!

During the coronavirus outbreak, MissImp has continued to offer entirely free online activities for our community, including commissioning an ongoing series of paid virtual drop-ins from improvisers around the world, fortnightly online Gorilla Burger shows and more. If you’d like to help us keep these activities going and keep our lights on we’d be immensely grateful. Together, we can get through this.
