TV’s Dragons make Frome boy’s dreams come true

TWELVE year old James Stewart from Frome has neurofibromatosis and it has always been his dream to meet the entrepreneur Peter Jones.  

His dream became reality when Peter Jones and the BBC Dragons’ Den team allowed him and his parents to visit the set during filming and meet the legendary Dragons.

The Dragons were impressed with James’ natural business acumen and told him that he could well be a Dragon of the future.

Peter Newman, from Dreams Come True said, “We get many different requests from families who want a dream; from special equipment to make the children’s lives easier such as sensory equipment or specially adapted bicycles, or a chance to go on a family holiday or to meet a famous person or band.

“We are delighted that Peter Jones, his fellow Dragons and the BBC were able to help us. Every time a dream becomes a reality it has a massive impact on the child and their family and you should never underestimate the power of a dream!”
