Army throws in the towel for monkeys

Metro

Monkeys left shivering in the cold at an animal sanctuary are warming up after an appeal for towels and blankets resulted in 10,000 being donated. The army even had to be drafted in to deliver the goods to Dorset's Monkey World after so many people responded to its call. A truck, two lorries and nine cars were needed to transport the goods to the centre. 'We never imagined the public would be so generous,' said Sarah Lambert, from the sanctuary. Radio station 2CR FM helped publicise the plea. 'It's been incredible - it turned out to be a military exercise,' said DJ Caroline Verdon.
