Peter Pan Just Keeps On Giving

The creator of Peter Pan, JM Barrie, gave the rights for his original book to London’s Great Ormond Street children’s hospital, meaning any and all royalties the character earned would go to the hospital and keep it funded. Though the copyright expired in 2007, the hospital has been allowed to keep collecting Pan-based money.

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals. Together with their research partner, the UCL Institute of Child Health (ICH), they form the UK’s only academic biomedical research centre specialising in paediatrics.
Since its formation in 1852, the hospital has been dedicated to children’s healthcare and to finding new and better ways to treat childhood illnesses.
