Jet2.com had a different kind of customer on their flight from Madeira to East Midlands Airport this week in the shape of Wilbur the penguin teddy.

Wilbur is raising awareness for the Royal Life Saving Society UK by heading off on his travels this summer to see how many miles he can get under his belt.

Jet2.com sent Wilbur on his way with a return flight from East Midlands Airport to Madeira and back and reunited him with his owner Della Wright Monday afternoon

Della Wright started Wilbur’s journey to raise awareness for the Royal Life Saving Society UK after her son Owen, at 12 years old, drowned in the River Trent after saving two girls who had got into trouble.

Wilbur’s journey aims to raise awareness of the dangers of open water and having completed his journey to Madeira, Wilbur has already got plans for his next adventure.
