Competition winners get a taste of Antarctica with penguin experience

After winning our competition run in collaboration with House Beautiful Magazine, a mother and daughter from Stourbridge chose to visit Chester Zoo to enjoy their prize – an exclusive penguin feeding experience.

Emma Wright and animal loving daughter, Abbie, visited the zoo in November and thanks to JELD-WEN, were able to get up close with the fantastic birds by entering the penguin enclosure, before helping to prepare food and feed them.

Emma commented: “The experience was absolutely fabulous and we had such a lovely, action-packed day at the zoo. Abbie loves animals, so it was the perfect treat for her as she got to see creatures of all shapes and sizes.

“The cherry on the cake was obviously the penguin experience and the informative keepers were brilliant at giving us background information on everything that they were doing, as well as getting us involved at every step along the way. This meant we assisted in food preparation and were even able to throw the fish out as far as possible, making sure that every penguin was able to have a fish lunch. We both had a fantastic time and Abbie has been talking about it ever since!”

JELD-WEN ran the competition to celebrate the launch of the Stormsure Energy+ timber window campaign.

The enduring performance of these timber windows means they are tough enough to withstand any environment and are relied upon all over the world, including Port Lockroy in the Antarctic Peninsula. You could feel just as at home in the Antarctic as the penguins that live there, thanks to the warm and comfort created by our Stormsure Energy+ timber window range.
