Nicola said: “It was great meeting so many generous visitors on Saturday and answering questions about macaques, as well as explaining about Selamatkan Yaki – the conservation programme we’re raising funds for which works out in Indonesia to save the species.”

A total of £64.12 was raised from Nicola’s bucket collection, which will boost the girls’ main sponsorship funds.

Nicola and Stephanie will be joining ten keepers from five zoo collections around the UK for the fundraiser where they’ll attempt to climb the UK’s highest mountains – Scotland’s Ben Nevis, Snowdonia in Wales and Scafell Pike in Cumbria in just 24 hours.

Nicola added: “With just a few hours to go now until the challenge, I think we’re as ready as we’ll ever be. We’re both quite apprehensive, but are looking forward to getting going now.”
