FURTHER supporters of the fire-hit Five Sisters Zoo have come forward following Susan Boyle’s announcement of her intention to provide a “substantial donation”.

Employees of The Centre, Livingston, will be aiding in the building of temporary homes for the surviving otter and two meerkats whose enclosures were destroyed in the recent devastating blaze.

The Centre has also donated huts to house the animals in while the work is going on. The project is part of a year-long partnership between the shopping centre and the popular zoo.

James Bailey, director of The Centre, said: “Everyone in the town was deeply saddened by the terrible fire at the Five Sisters Zoo.

“However, it has spurred a real sense of community spirit. We’re delighted to be making this small contribution and look forward to continuing to support the team at the zoo throughout the next year.”

Ms Boyle visited the West Calder attraction last week.
