Dapto pro-wrestler Benny Coles became a cult hero as the face for I&J frozen fish in advertisements under the name Iron Jay. Coles runs a mobile personal training business and still competes in the ring but one of his greatest loves is putting smiles on children's faces. He and a team of wrestlers do that free-of-charge for KidzWish.
