STAFF at Go Ape in Worcestershire are literally going bananas to support the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The forest adventure course, based near Kidderminster, has been taken part in the nation wide Go Ape big banana relay to raise money for the charity.

The relay will see the big banana travelling a total of 1,823 miles across the UK with the Go Ape gorillas using the quirkiest forms of travel possible.

It got underway at Leeds Castle on Saturday, June 14, and the big banana made its way to Go Ape Wyre Forest.

They took it on an adventure on July 25, cycling and canoeing to get it to its next destination on the relay route of Go Ape Cannock Chase, near Birmingham.

Rebecca Mayhew, co-founder and director of Go Ape, said: "We are proud to support Teenage Cancer Trust and that our Go Ape Team have launched this fantastic fundraising campaign the #BigBananaRelay to raise money and have fun while the big banana travels 1,823 miles around our Go Ape locations in the UK."
