Monty the penguin moves house

Following the success of the John Lewis Christmas 2014 advert, the star of the show, Monty the Penguin is moving to his new home at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

NNUH won the opportunity to provide Monty with a new home following a competition. Monty spent his festive break in the toy department at the Norwich John Lewis store and will unpack his suitcase at the Norfolk and Norwich and settle into his new home where he can delight patients, visitors and staff.

Louise Cook, Fundraising Manager said: “Monty will be a great addition to the hospital enhancing the surroundings for patients, visitors and staff and I’m sure Monty will put a smile on everyone’s face.”

John Lewis commented: “We have really enjoyed Monty the penguin spending time with us at John Lewis Norwich and we are delighted that he is going to a good home at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. We hope that Monty continues to bring joy to patients and visitors as he has to our customers and Partners''

The Christmas advert told the story of Sam and his best friend Monty the Penguin.
