Great Ormond Street Hospital 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
Great Ormond Street Hospital 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle from Gibsons highlights the wonderful work of this great institution.
Every day, 619 children & young people from across the UK arrive at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses and the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential and a better future.
In 1929, JM Barrie unexpectedly and generously gifted his copyright of Peter Pan to GOSH. In recognition of the unprecedented generosity and the exceptional work of the hospital itself, the House of Lords sprinkled more fairy dust over GOSH in 1988, by voting overwhelmingly for a special clause in the UK's Copyright Designs & Patents Act. This amendment gives the hospital the right to a royalty from Peter Pan in perpetuity. Thus, for over 80 years, the story of Peter Pan continues to benefit the seriously ill children who come to GOSH for life-saving treatment every day.
This 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle was beautifully drawn by Richard Argent, an artist specialising in historic cartoons. He has drawn this Great Ormond Street Hospital picture as a tribute to the doctors and nurses who treated him for a life-threatening illness as a baby.
