Watch: Cousins come together to raise money for zoo

More news, no ads


Inspired by The Sound of Music and trips to Banham Zoo, a pair of budding musicians have created an animal-themed song to help raise money for the award-winning animal attraction during the coronavirus outbreak.

Hero Johnston, nine, from London, and her cousin, 17-year-old Ottilie, from Antwerp, Belgium, go to the zoo when they visit their granny, Wendy, in Garboldisham.

The pair wrote 'Raindrops on Rhino's and Whiskers on Tigers' to try to raise funds for the Zoological Society of East Anglia, which runs the zoo and Kessingland's Africa Alive!

It is believed that it costs around £25,000 a week to feed and care for the animals at both zoos and while the gates have been shut the ZSEA have said they have lost more than £1 million so far from visitor revenue.

The society is hoping to reach a target of £1 million to ensure the welfare, food and support of all its animals at both zoos until next Spring.

To donate or to enter into a range of prize draws which include a family day trip for up to six people and a behind the scenes tour at either zoo for the whole family, click here.
