A young magician has raised more than £160 for a brain tumour charity after he staged a magic show at March Town Hall.
Ryan Large, 20, learnt his craft while being treated for cancer on a children’s ward in Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.
Now, he is putting his skills to good use and in the last week has raised £347 for charity - of that total £164 was raised from his magic night.
As a teenager Ryan, from Benwick, was treated for a brain tumour and after finishing treatment for multifocal germinoma in 2014, he is now in remission.
He is a member of the Magic Circle and has a Facebook page, Two Packs of Cards, to promote his work.
