It’s an attractive and ambient space with distinct elements of an African rainforest village where you can sit and browse information about the inspirational work of The Gorilla Organization. Available for purchase are eye-catching T-shirts, gorgeous cuddly gorillas, traditional African kikoys (hand-woven and hand-dyed sarongs), Fair Trade crafts, and books signed by authors Ian Redmond and Stanley Johnson. You can also ‘Adopt a Gorilla’ with a beautiful gift pack including a T-shirt and Adoption Certificate. More volunteers are now needed. If you’re up for a fun time, and want to extend your work or charity experience (you may also wear a gorilla costume if you so choose!) then drop in or contact The Gorilla Organisation online. This is also a place where people can sign up for the ‘Great Gorilla Run’. This fabulous fundraiser, now in its tenth year, will be held on September 21. Hundreds of participants in gorilla costumes (provided on registration) run, jog or walk from Tower Bridge to St Paul’s past Tate Modern and across the Millennium Bridge. Its patron Bill Oddie says it’s “the most fun event for conservation going on anywhere in the world.” And surely the most distinctive. Executive Director Jillian Miller is careful to point out that “it’s not all about the gorillas but actually about working with the people, putting solar power in the villages, to protect the environment around the gorilla habitat. It’s really satisfying work.” You too can be wholly satisfied in supporting a delicately-managed and immensely worthwhile environmental programme. Opening Times: Mon: 11am – 5pm Tue: 11am – 5pm Wed: 11am – 5pm Thu: 11am – 7pm Fri: 11am – 7pm Sat: 11am – 7pm Sun: 11am – 5pm Links: www.gorillas.org www.greatgorillarun.org
