Shoppers can meet the lions

the Yorkshire Wildlife Park at Branton, Doncaster, has joined forces with Tesco in a competition promoting a new range of healthy foods.

Winners will have the chance to spend a VIP day getting close and helping feed the park’s pride of lions. Customers buying two items from the Goodness range will also pick up free child tickets for the attraction.

The promotion coincides with this week’s release of the movie Zookeeper.

Cheryl Williams, director of the park, said: “We are delighted to be a part of the Tesco/Zookeeper promotion. It is not only a great chance to encourage more people to visit Yorkshire Wildlife Park, but it allows us to promote healthy eating as well as offering visitors a fun day out.”
