The 501st UK Garrison was out in force this weekend at Stars & Cars 2019 in Lancashire - one of our biggest non MCM, Comic Con or film Premiere events on the calendar for our members, and our biggest charity event so far this year... and whilst we await the final total, the profits and collections counted so far equate to over £17,000 for the weekend.
Stars & Cars 2019 was organised by two of our very own UK Garrison members, Colin Wilby & Mick Croskery. The annual event is intended to raise funds for Derian House Children's Hospice. The hospice provide respite care and support to children battling life limiting or life shortening illnesses.
Whilst providing ticket holders with a fantastic movie & TV themed experience, we also invite many children who benefit from the services the hospice provide, to help create some amazing memories for them and their families.
The UK Garrison played a fundamental part in the show, entertaining the crowds and providing great photo opportunities, alongside our Rebel Command and Reel Icons members, Rebel Legion and the R2 Builders.
