Legal help for non-profit organisiations

Just a question.

As part of a non-profit organisation we held our annual BBQ for all our members at the end of June.

This requires alot of planning and costs us in the region of 2000chf to put on this free event for all our members, as a thank you for all the help the previous school year.

Unfortunately the location we hired , with a contract ( Maur Schützenhaus) decided to run building/maintenance on the site the same day as our BBQ without consulting us.

This meant that our event, which requires the whole 'rented area', which by contract is ours for the day, was unusable.

We discovered this on the morning of our BBQ when picking up the key at the Schützenhaus (4 hours before the BBQ started).

Tools, building material and transport was all over the place, including nails and drills which arent the best thing to be lying about for a Childrens Centre BBQ where alot of the children attending are 5 and under.

We took videos, photos etc to show how the space was unusable.

We had spent alot of money on hiring bouncy castles, ponies for pony rides, food and drink and obviously the expense of hiring the location.

I have more information available, our reciepts, evidence of the state of the location and the contract.

If anyone knows of anyone who could help us reclaim some of our expenses we would be greatful.

Sadly as we are a non-profit organisation we can not afford the expense of a lawyer, as the fees would cancel out our claim to try and recover some of our expenses.

Many thanks
