Do you sometimes wonder what happens in the UK Club Penguin office in Brighton? As well as working super hard looking after Club Penguin, we also do other stuff to help make the world a better place! So I thought it would be a brill idea to share some of the cool things that the UK team's been up to recently!
Love In A Box
Each year, when the festive season is approaching, the whole team goes on an outing to purchase lots of small gifts and supplies, which we then put in empty shoe boxes and send out to deprived children in Europe. This year’s event was a huge success as we filled and wrapped 53 boxes!! Everybody had such a brill time knowing we were donating to such a worthy cause. You can see my box below!
5 brave members of the team did a very honourable deed last week and donated blood! I went too, even though I don’t like needles (I hope you're proud of me)! It was totally worth it though, because as well as us potentially saving a person’s life, they gave us tea and BISCUITS afterwards! :D
Preparing for Christmas
Tree? CHECK! Decorations? CHECK! A giant fake snow machine??? I wish! ;) To get us all in the seasonal sprit, the whole team gathered to decorate the office in twinkling lights, tinsel and other sparkly things! Not long till Christmas now, right?
That’s all for this month’s UK news, I hope you enjoyed it! I'll do another update next month. :)

As promised, here is the brand-new super-epic Penguin of the Week! Not only does it look totally brill, but I'm giving away some seriously exciting stuff too!
Congratulations to our first POTW Sir Sillines (ace name btw!) He is one loyal EPF Agent, always preparing fellow agents for upcoming operations and briefing everyone on the latest EPF news. I've no doubt he's been a star puffle-rescuer this week! EPIC agent!
I'm really happy to give Sir Sillines the awesome Green Viking Helmet and a whopping 10,000 coins! Mega!
If you think your buddy should be Penguin of the Week, leave a comment below with their username and why you think they should be featured! :)

For the last year we have been working on something HUGE! We have been building a WHOLE NEW technology to take Club Penguin into the future. Right now we're calling it CPNext. CPNext will allow us to take the Penguin world to new platforms and devices – connecting our community here on clubpenguin.com to mobile devices on iOS and Android, smart TVs, and who knows what else may come?!
CPNext will look and feel just like Club Penguin today, with a few improvements along the way. We want it to feel as close as possible to the CP community you love! You've already seen the first version of the CPNext technology on "My Penguin" for iPad... mobile igloos are built on it already. We've worked hard to make sure that the CPNext igloos are fully connected with igloos on desktop, so the experience across both is totally seamless.
With CPNext, we will finally be launching the Jump to Friend feature! To make things simpler and faster, you can just jump to where your friend is right when you log in. Much simpler and easier than in current CP! We know this has been a long requested feature – and it's finally coming!
We know that there is some concern about always having full rooms. Don't worry! We've built a lot of smarts into the system to make sure you stay with your friends when you go from room to room. And we will be watching and listening and can turn the number of Penguins in a room up or down based on your feedback. This is your world and we will work with you to find the right balance!
We will be taking our "next" step with CPNext in December with the launch of the Town on iPad. We will then start launching new rooms into the app every few weeks! Over the next few months you are going to see the CP world come to life on mobile. And for those of you with iPhones, iPod Touch, or Android devices – we are working on these NOW and plan to bring the Club Penguin app to you, too!
This is only a tiny bit of what we have planned – wait 'til you see the future for Puffles and Card-Jitsu... ;)
