Finn Hangs Out With The Kids

Early this week, John Boyega best known for his character Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens visited a devoted fan at the hospital. Daniel has a brain tumour and has been residing at Royal London Hospital for some time, when Daniel saw Star Wars he knew he wanted to meet Finn immediately.

So Daniel’s mum along with the children charity Rays of Sunshine contacted Boyega about the opportunity and he ‘jumped at the chance’ according to mum Rosalind.

 

The duo spent the day handing out gifts to the other kids in the hospital while Boyega came in his ‘Finn’ costume and character much to the children’s amusement.Daniel’s mum had this to say at the end, ‘To see Daniel smile like that without a care in the world after everything he’s been through, knowing how much time and effort Rays Of Sunshine have put in to his wish and that John Boyega gave his time to make it come true, is priceless.’ She added: ‘these things can’t be bought and really do mean the world.’ Boyega also went to Instagram to talk about his positive experience with Daniel. What a lad!
