When you select this virtual gift, you’ll be donating a big tasty cake to the monkeys at Monkey Haven. Our animals love tucking into our Keepers’ home-baked cake, which is packed with nutritious ingredients. The recipe is a closely guarded secret but includes mashed banana or peanut butter, instead of butter, honey instead of sugar, and herbs and dried fruit for an added flavour sensation.
Sometimes, when it’s hot, they might make a frozen bake – like the smoothie and cereal cake they made for Somer’s 7th birthday (pictured here).
Every time an animal has a birthday, we’ll make them a cake, as we want them to feel special. They share it with their pals, so everyone gets a piece. We think they deserve the very best – but the ingredients are pricy, and the animals eat a lot. Your gift will help to fund their favourite treat.
Keeper Lisa says: “This is a real treat for the primates as they all follow specific diet sheets for their species. Fruit is limited each day due to the sugar content, but we can treat them to a little slice of birthday cake on special occasions.”
In return for your generous donation you will receive a thank you card from Monkey Haven. Alternatively if you would like to donate the cake as a present from someone else, then we’ll address the card to anyone else you choose. When you check out, please put the name you’d like on the card in the Notes section, and let us know the address you’d like it sent to.
If you are a UK tax payer you can Gift Aid this purchase by ticking the Gift Aid box as you check out – this doesn’t cost you anything extra, but it helps us a lot with with our rescue and rehabilitation work.
