People went bananas over our souvenir playing cards celebrating GoGoGorillas! - and we are delighted to announce that more will be available next week.
About 2,000 of the decks - which feature all 54 of the gorillas - have so far been snapped up, and this latest batch has an extra special touch.
Evening News and EDP editor Nigel Pickover said: “We have had an amazing response to our GoGoGorillas! playing cards. This latest batch of cards will be a special gold edition and they will be available from Monday at our offices.”
About the plans for the GoGoGorillas! grand finale, Mr Pickover said: “GoGoGorillas! have not quite gone yet, and we are looking forward to a spectacular celebratory farewell outside the Forum where the gorillas will be on display for people to say their goodbyes.
“It will be the last time the gorillas are altogether and we are expecting thousands of people to come and visit.”
• The gold edition GoGoGorillas! cards will be available from Monday at 9am at the EDP and Evening News’ Norwich office in Rouen Road, as well as our offices in Diss, Beccles, Cromer, Great Yarmouth, Dereham, Fakenham and Lowestoft.
The decks of GoGoGorillas! playing cards cost £7 each. People who collected six of the tokens published in the EDP and Evening News last month can buy a pack for £3.50 plus the six tokens.
The cards are available on a first come first served basis.
