The Animal Experience has sponsored Stretham Sporting under 8s in the Cambridgeshire Mini Soccer League, the first time they have offered sponsorship to a sports organisation.

A spokesperson for The Animal Experience, a family-run zoo and animal centre based in Stretham, said: “We believe in helping local organisations where possible and sponsoring the Stretham Sporting under 8s team kit was a great opportunity to advertise ourselves in the local community and also support a great team for children.

“We are very proud to have been able to do this particularly with the current circumstances as many small organisations are struggling to raise much-needed funds.”
