Dress up for Great Ormond Street!

Peter Pan Week at Great Ormond Street HospitalOK, time to dig out and dust off the Peter Pan video – the Fifties original can still be found on DVD, at Amazon – and get inspired. From, 26-30 April, Great Ormond Street Hospital is asking children to ‘think happy thoughts and take part in Peter Pan Week 2010′! The week will culminate in an attempt to achieve a Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest number of people dressed as Peter Pan’, and the charity is hoping to get as many nurseries, primary schools and youth clubs on board as possible (for more info and to register, fly over to peterpanweek.co.uk, or tel: 020 7239 3182).

Walt Disney's Peter Pan on DVD, at AmazonTo help schools and families get into the spirit of Peter Pan Week, Great Ormond Street has lots of fab ideas and a fundraising pack available (there’s even a series of videos on the website – see them here – showing you how to make your own costume, presented by Kirsten O’Brien of BBC’s SMART. Very cool.). Suggestions include fairy cake bakes, organising a hunt for treasure with Captain Hook and Peter Pan-themed Mufti days (save these for 30th April, to take part in the record-breaking effort!).

All funds raised will help Great Ormond Street to achieve the target of £160, 000, needed to build two new en-suite bedrooms in the cardiac centre of the hospital. This would transform the currently cramped rooms, providing enough space to accommodate life-saving equipment and a spare bed for parents, so the family can be together in hospital. We can’t think of a better reason to join in the fun.

    Jenni Baden HowardDaily adventures in beauty, style, health and fitness, family, food and fun!

    I'm a beauty and lifestyle writer and juggle-from-home mama (the Italian genes explain the mad hair and love of bronzer). I've written for a wide range of British glossies, newspapers and weekend supplements, along with many beauty and lifestyle websites.

    Now in my Forties, I truly believe that true beauty is both ageless and timeless (although I could be biased).
