[https://www.facebook.com/Comparethemeerkat?sk=app_154168038044236 ] last Friday to

Aleksandr pleaded with the people of the United Kingdom to help and they did! Over
11,000 people sent Sergei a card over the weekend in just 36 hours.

featured in new TV adverts by Sergei’s bedside advising customers that he will reward
