Chimpanzee Fundraiser

On 10th August from 6:15pm until 8:30pm we are opening our doors for an after hour peek at what our animals get up to in the evenings with 100% of the money going to support charity work in Uganda with wild chimpanzees and rural communities.

Some of our keepers will be on hand to have a chat with you about their animals and our cafe will be serving food during the evening. You can expect both play areas to be open if the kids want something else to do, however with such a great opportunity who wants to be indoors?

To help maximise our fund raising for our charity we will also have a raffle with prizes including (please make sure to check out all their website links – we really appreciate the help they have given us):

A tour and tasting session for 2 at Chapel Down
A family entrance and guided tour at Canterbury Cathedral
