Over the weekend of the MCM London Comic Con the 501st UK Garrison and Reel Icons showed support for #WillenHospice in Milton Keynes and their #WackyForWillen campaign. The hospice is a registered charity, providing care for people from the age of 18 upwards. Their services are free to those they care for but to continue to offer that care they need to raise around £9 every minute.

The UK Garrison were out on patrol along the corridors and wards of the Addenbrookes Hospital children's wards in Cambridge today. With a mix of poorly children excited to see us and terrified staff trying to hide from us, all in 

Trooping today were Stormtroopers Mark Morris (TK70046), Paul Herbert (TK28271) and Garry Corcoran (TK22673) under the command of Staff Officer Tony Lee (ID51007) and accompanied our very own Mr Stark from Reel Icons, Steve Braund as Iron Man.all it was a good day for the 501st UK Garrison putting smiles on faces.

Our spotters and helpers for the day were Alison Lee and Claire Chaundy.

All photos posted have consent. There were so many more magical moments that we were not permitted to photograph, but memories were made today for some poorly little children... and that's what we do best.

funeralThe UK Garrison was called upon to provide a special guard of honour at the funeral of Elliott Ashton in London yesterday. Elliott, a lifelong Star Wars fan, passed away after a long and painful struggle with several brain tumours. He was instrumental in the Stuart Freeborne memorial plaque being put in place, as well as organising many Star Wars events like 'Star Walls' in Leytonstone. He was truly a great guy and will be greatly missed.

Bristol Hospital VisitOur troopers were on hand to provide an imperial presence and put smiles on faces during our visit for patients and families at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.

This is a regular visit for us and the UK Garrison are more than happy to make these memories, and be able to make some poorly little ones smile and just for a while, take their minds off their conditions, treatments and the day to day issue they may have.

Our troopers on the day were:
Rikki Teml (27378) Biker Scout, Debbie Teml (27477) was our helper/spotter, and Stormtroopers Jay Hill (23087) and Simon Dawson (89135). Parental permission granted to show you all this photo of our little blaster-tooting trooper in the making.

Well done troopers.
