A MONKEY in need of a loving sponsor has found one – just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Maarten, a six-year-old Colobus monkey, was one of the only animals in Drusillas Park, in Alfriston, without an adopter.

His keepers even put a plea for help in The Argus.

Now ten-year-old Jack Parker, above, has stepped in to help.

The youngster used his saved pocket money to adopt the monkey, after filling out the adoption form.
