Save & Donate to Monkey World
A unique opportunity to save money and provide funds towards the vital work at Monkey World.
I’ve been a lifetime supporter of Monkey World – Dorset’s Ape Rescue Centre. Cool story – There’s an old new newspaper clipping of me as a baby alongside the legendary Jim Cronin as one of the first babies to visit the park when it opened in 1987! Yep I’m still a whippersnapper to many!
When I set up the Honest Agency I got in touch with Monkey World to offer to donate our time and as a result, we built the lovely Jim Cronin Memorial Fund website. A new site for Monkey World was already in production by another agency.
Fast forward to late 2018 and we receive a phone call – the hosting company had gone bankrupt and left Monkey World without a website! With no access to back-ups, our superhero developers could only grab what they could from the Internet’s Time Machine (web.archive.org) and via some clever scripts, piece together the old site.
The team then got to work on creating the beautiful website you see today! Fully responsive, it works on all screen-sizes and has a visual style worthy of Jim’s vision. The whole site is content managed allowing easy maintenance and we’ve built some features in for later this year…
The store is actually powered by the Centre’s in house till system, but the provider has used the header and footer of the site to make it feel the same.
We love the site and we hope you do too, but now it’s time to give back again…
For every Monkey World supporter that starts a project with us, even a small SEO one, we will donate £7.50/hour or £100 whichever is greater to Monkey World. On an average website build that could be a donation of around £500!
We will also open this offer to those on our social enterprise discounted rate, but the donation will be £50 – £100 per project depending on the project value.
To organise the donation, simply quote “Chris has gone Bananas”.
For those interested, here’s me as a baby with Jim on the left:
