Variety, the Children's Charity treated over 60 children to a special Star Wars themed party at Planet Hollywood, London.

Variety Star Wars gold heart pinVariety work with schools across London through a Variety at Work Programme. Children who benefit from this programme were invited to the legendary movie memorabilia restaurant to launch their Star Wars Gold Heart for 2012.
Their Star Wars Gold Heart features R2D2 and C-3PO and the limited edition pin badge is available online and also through the following supporters: Odeon Cinemas, Cineworld Cinemas, www.Jedi-Robe.com - The Star Wars Shop (in stores and online), H Samuel, the Leeds Building Society and DeVere Venues.

After a lunch fit for the chosen one and polished off with a space age sprinkling of ice cream, the children were entertained with a craft workshop including lightsabers and Star Wars masks, as well as face painting, a magician and balloon models suitable for tackling the bad guys of the universe.

We at 501st UK Garrison teamed up with Rebel Legion UK and made volunteer appearances in full costume to add to the intergalactic atmosphere.

The force was strong within all of the attendees, making it slightly difficult to tell who was more excited about the visiting costumed crusaders as teachers and carers re-lived their childhood and joined in with the photos!

To help support such a fantastic cause, you can purchase a limited edition Star Wars Gold Heart here – Variety Gold Hearts.
For every badge sold, 100% will be donated to Variety.

Thanks for your support. May the force be with you...
