Dynamo fulfilled the wishes of seriously ill children when he surprised them at Frankie & Benny’s in Wembley last Tuesday.

The magician is an ambassador of Rays of Sunshine Children’s charity, he spent the day showing the children some of his infamous tricks.

Jack Mongey, 15, of Luton, is living with a rare liver disease, he enjoyed a limosuine trip to London with his family to meet Dynamo.

Jack said to the illusionist: “You are a very gifted man and make a lot of people happy.”

Dynamo, who was diagnosed with chron’s disease when he was 13, said: “ “Meeting these children is so humbling and overwhelming. Just to be able to put smiles on their face, that’s what it’s all about really.

“Having chron’s disease myself, having lived through that, it put things into perspective a bit, so I can empathise with what these kids are going through.

“So to be able inspire these people and show that it doesn’t matter what you’ve got or any problems you’ve got in your life, you can still make something of yourself or have confidence to get out there and do something.

“Because when I was growing up I didn’t have anybody to do that other than my grandpa, and without him inspiring me, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing today. So it’s great to be able to inspire these guys.”

Sharon Mongey, Jack’s mum said: “The whole family thoroughly enjoyed the special day with this truly magical man.”

The children’s charity brightens up lives of seriosuly ill children aged 13-18 in the UK by granting wishes and organising outings.
