Picnic 4 Primates- Celebrating 30 years of Monkey World

5000 people celebrated with a picnic in the park!

Thank you to everyone who came to our Picnic 4 Primates- we raised over £3000 through our goody bag sales, apple bobbing, banana eating, raffle and other stalls!

The event was a massive success and it was great to see so many people turning up to show their support to Monkey World.

Thank you to Empire Print Works who donated this amazing board for the day!


A special thank you to our sponsors who supported the day through generous donations!

We'd also like to thank Wareham Sainsbury's for kindly donating bananas for the banana eating competition. Any left over found good homes with the primates! Thank you for your ongoing support!
