Looking for a unusual Christmas gift? Why not adopt a primate at Monkey World

Monkey World

First published Wednesday 17 December 2014 in News

The gift shop at Monkey World Ape Rescue Centre will be open late for Christmas shopping tomorrow.

A park spokesman said: “With thousands of unique gift ideas to choose from, including stocking fillers, games, clothes, jewellery, glassware, books and soft toys, finish your Christmas shopping at the primate sanctuary this week.”

You can even ‘adopt a primate’ as a present, for £20, with all the money going into a fund for the rescue and rehabilitation of monkeys and apes.

The spokesman said: “Adoption packs include a photograph of your chosen primate, a certificate, up to three editions of the Ape Rescue Chronicle newsletter magazine and a free entry pass to the park for a whole year.”

The gift shop opens late, from 4.30-7pm, on Thursday December 18.
