Monkey World is in need of a new basket to entertain one of its resident monkeys.

Golden-cheeked gibbon Peanut loves hanging out in the centre's hot air balloon basket, and is often seen relaxing inside by visitors.

However, the basket is now past its best and needs replacing.

Monkey World is appealing to anyone who owns a hot air balloon basket or basket of a similar size to donate it to the centre.

A spokesman for Monkey World said: “Unfortunately, the basket is a little past its best, and could do with replacing- does anyone have an old basket we could use for her? Either from a hot air balloon, or similar size? It would be great if you can share this and help us find a replacement, so Peanut can continue to hang out in her favourite spot!"

If you or someone you know owns a suitable basket contact Monkey World by calling 01929 462537.
