CHESTER Zoo has launched a new membership, designed especially for foster carers.

The new annual membership will display a photo of the foster carer, meaning they can access the Zoo with any foster child under their care at that time.

Karolyn Toner, memberships and adoptions manager at Chester Zoo, said: “We wanted to create a membership that would be both beneficial and cost effective for foster carers.”

To buy this unique type of membership foster carers must provide a foster carer identification card or a letter from the supervising social worker confirming they are a foster carer.

To purchase a foster carer membership at £35, please visit the membership cabin at the main entrance of Chester Zoo.Š Alternatively, please call call 01244 650208.
