DIARY: Save the Rhino (that is the horny animal, not the horny lapdancers)

Strippers and endangered horned beasts - not creatures you'd naturally put side by side.

So Campaign was amused to see an outstanding display of page setting in that august publication, the Evening Standard, recently.

A feature in one of last week's issues highlighted the "plight" of London's most salubrious lap-dancing venue, Spearmint Rhino.

And what should appear in the top-left corner, right next to the opening paragraph, but an ad for Save the Rhino International, the charity which sends hapless punters around marathon courses clad in rubber rhino suits.

Neil Bridgeland, the Save the Rhino events manager, claims no knowledge of the ad. "It must have been the ES doing us a favour - they use our ads as free fillers," he said. Rumours that the ferocious Standard editor, Veronica Wadley, has founded a Pet's Corner at the paper are unfounded.
