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. A better future for seriously ill children starts here.
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.
Puzzle dimensions: 49x68cm
About The Artist:
Richard has been drawing cartoons ever since he can remember. His first influences were the likes of The Beano and Dandy and like most children of his age, the Marvel comics. The road to creating his cartoon histories started when he went to travel around South East Asia. He had been running a cafe on Sark in the Channel Islands and had saved enough for an extensive trip abroad. To record his travels, he turned his experiences into detailed cartoons of each country he visited. On returning to England he wanted to keep drawing in this style, depicting images of his native Essex and football cartoons.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board, FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.
We have made some positive changes to our processes, so you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know that they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look, but we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap to reduce our plastic waste.
There is a gloss coating on the box for extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils. Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
Puzzle size is 49x68cm when complete.
