Oldham Youth Council once had a campaign called purple monkey washing machine (check out the I love Me page for more info). Back then we drafted in our friends, the purple sock monkeys, to help get our point across. After all their hard work we now think they deserve some R&R living with an amazing Youth Councillor. If you are interested in adopting one of monkeys check out the descriptions below the photos then fill out the form below. Once you adopt a monkey we would like you to send us tweet/insta updates of where they have been and what they have been up to.
