The Lions Club of Reading
The fantastic Star Wars 501 Garrison crew have raised funds for Reading by producing superhero face masks. Sold at local hairdressers and barbers this has raised several hundred pounds for Round Up. (Message us if you wish to sell them too).
They are community minded, for many years enthralling Star Wars fans and supporting Reading by appearing at many events such as our Dragon Boat Festivals,
You can support Round up by using any of the 60+ local businesses who have helped raise over £5600 to date to help our vital community services survive and continue through this pandemic.
Our local businesses need our support too, with many keen to hear that you are eager to visit again once they are fully open.
501 Garrison are keen to meet Star Wars fans again soon and would love to hear from you now.

On Thursday 4th April 2013, the UK Garrison attended one of those extra special and meaningful events that make us all proud to be part of the UKG. We were invited by MediCinema to troop at the Defense Medical Rehabilitation Centre Headley Court for a Star Wars themed day they had organised. We also took this opportunity to present MediCinema with a cheque for £2,500.

A week of Black, White & Blu!

Earlier this year Fox approached the UKG to help them promote the Blu-Ray release of Star Wars. Obviously we jumped at the chance. Back in August we attended the Empire Magazine Event at London's O2 Arena, where along with Mr C3PO himself (Anthony Daniels) we drew attention the upcoming release. We even featured heavily in their magazine. This proved to be a great start to the new relationship between Fox, their PR company and the UK Garrison.

The UK Garrison is proud to support the following charities.
