We like this news story from 15 April 1929.

As this is one of these stories to make the heart sing and keep us forever young, we think it’s the perfect way to start the week.

  • How interesting! Whilst Johnny Depp was filming in the UK a few years ago, his daughter was taken seriously ill and was admitted to this hospital where doctors were able to save her life, and on her discharge Mr Depp donated a sizeable sum of money. He also played the part of J.M.Barrie in his film portraying how Peter Pan came about, called Neverland. Just saying!

    • Hi Penny, oh we didn’t know that about Johnny Depp – but it’s story to lift the hearts on a grey Monday morning. Good for Johnny Depp, we say! Regards, Grant.
