Goodman Masson set a new Guinness World Record in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital
284 Pans gathered on the steps of the iconic St Paul’s Cathedral in London to support for the Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity.
Why Peter Pan? JM Barrie gave all the rights to Peter Pan to GOSH in 1929 and this was later confirmed when he died in 1937. Although he and his wife were childless, Barrie loved children and had supported GOSH for many years. His support nowdays continues through his legacy.
After the Guinness World Record Attempt, the Pans walked around the streets of London to fundraise money for GOSH. All funds raised were donated to GOSH Charity to enable them to provide world-class care for its young patients and their families and to pioneer new treatments and cures for childhood illness.
CEO, Guy Hayward said: “This year, we will pass £100,000 we have raised for Great Ormond Street Hospital and it is days like this makes it possible. We set out ambitious project of becoming world record holders and 284 people dressed as Peter Pan made it reality.”
“(This was) an amazing achievement and a wonderful way to support the children and parents of a very special place.”
