Celebrity John Boyega dusted off his Star Wars: The Power Awakens costume to deliver toys to children at a London hospital on Friday.

The British star teamed up with the Rays of Sunshine kids’s charity to allow the wish of Daniel Bell, a five-year old at The Royal London Hospital who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Daniel needed to meet Boyega’s Star Wars character Finn, and hand out Star Wars-themed toys with him to other ill patients at the medical center in the English capital. Boyega “leapt at the opportunity to help it become come true,” and donned the hero’s light brown leather jacket once again, while Daniel dressed as a stormtrooper

“Daniel is an incredible and inspirational son,” Boyega told the Belfast Telegraph paper. It was wonderful to be part of his particular wish with Rays of Sunlight. It was also wonderful to meet the kids at The Royal London Hospital and be part of something so positive.”

Daniel’s mother Rosalind took on Saturday to Facebook to commend for being generous with his time, composing, “Thank you so much Rays of Sun and John Boyega the celebrity for allowing Daniel’s wish to meet with Finn and take toys to the hospital. It was simply awesome, I ‘ve no words! Daniel is completely overwhelmed, I’ve never found him so joyful.”

Boyega, who also instructed Daniel how to correctly fight with a lightsaber, afterwards posted a collage of pictures from his day with Daniel on Instagram, alongside the caption, “This small stormtrooper Daniel had an excellent wish after seeing the power awakens (sic).”

“Daniel now resides with a brain tumor and rather than having Finn to himself he needed Finn to meet the children at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. While I was with this courageous lad asking him what a car was I remained in character. He instructed Finn about everything world connected! Actually grateful for the chance this kid given I and me ’m only humiliated!

“I expect I played a little part in making you grin youthful stormtrooper.”
