A zoo in Milnthorpe is hoping that there can still be some use found in your unwanted Christmas tree.

Lakeland Wildlife Oasis have launched an appeal asking for any potted trees to be donated to them instead of being thrown away.

A spokesperson said: "These trees would make great additions to many of our animal exhibits, providing new areas to explore, climb and hide as well as helping spruce up the site."

"If you have any potted trees to donate, then please drop them past the zoo, knowing they will be massively appreciated by our zoo team and animals."

Most recently, the zoo has been incorporating festive decorations with their exhibits, meaning that the Christmas trees will not remotely look out of place.

Having had a short break over the festive season, the zoo is now set to be open every day for the rest of the year.
