Alderney is helping Great Ormond Street Hospital in London, with its stamp issue marking the 150th Anniversary of the Birth of J M Barrie.
Barrie donated all future rights from his fictional creation, Peter Pan, to the children’s hospital in 1929, and it continues to receive royalties.
The vivid images on the six stamps are taken from illustrations by David Wyatt to accompany the official sequel to Barrie’s book, Peter Pan in Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean, which was first published in 2006.
They show a group of children above London (36p), Captain Hook falling into the jaws of a crocodile (45p), Peter visiting Captain Hook’s ship (48), Peter waving a rainbow (50p), children at the top of Neverpeak (58p) and children around a bonfire (80p).
There is also a £3 miniature sheet showing Peter over Neverland.
