The chimpanzees and other animals at the sanctuary had nowhere else to go and it is comforting to know that these creatures and others like them will always have a home there.

James Cordon and Sheridan Smith were so pleased to meet the animals that both agreed to become patrons of the sanctuary.

They appeared together in the second series of "Gavin and Stacey" and have many other TV and theatre successes to their credit.

Sheridan Smith, OBE - came to prominence on television for her roles in comedy shows Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps, Love Soup, Gavin & Stacey, Grownups and Benidorm.

James Corden, OBE - actor, comedian, television host, and singer. He hosts The Late Late Show with James Corden, a late-night television talk show on CBS

Graham Norton the well known and well loved chat show host and consummate comedian has been a patron of our sanctuary since the year 2002.

Graham, born in Clondalkin near Dublin honed his media skills in San Francisco, USA, before becoming known through his appearances as a regular panellist on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends program.

He originally made his mark as a comedian but became an international star of television when he brought his unique style of wit and humour to chat shows with the BBC’s Graham Norton Show.

He is a man of many parts however, which he proved when he was given the difficult job, and some would say thankless task, of hosting the European Song contest.

Graham is now a household name. He cheers people up.  We are delighted that he agreed to be a patron of our sanctuary.
