Star Wars Weekend

SFMuk Admin » Jun 20 '16

Sorry for my lack of posts and presence on the site over the last few weeks.  Work has been hectic and when I've had some spare time it has been used getting everything sorted out for the Star Wars show this coming weekend.  If you are in Leicester over the weekend, or nearby, and have a spare few hours I'd recommend giving it a visit.  

 

I'm going to try something completely new this time and do a vlog for the weekend.  I'll get it posted up on YouTube once I'm back and everything is edited together.  Hopefully it will be worth a watch..? But of course there will be the usual photos etc. Not sure I'll be able to do anything over the weekend as probably wont be time but will get things loadedas quickly as possible.

 

PS.  We are running a raffle on the day with some great prizes.  If anyone would like tickets they are 50p each and payment can be made via PayPal to sfm.uk@sky.com.  We have a draw on Saturday and one on Sunday so please specify which you would like and I will put tickets in for you.  I'm afraid you'll have to pay for postage yourself if you do win but the prizes are pretty good, so worth covering that.  All the proceeds (literally the whole 50p) go to the charity Little People UK.  This is a charity founded by Warwick Davies and for which we funded raised last year and took ~£350.  Hoping for even better this year!

 

Many thanks

Just a quick update as have a mega busy day at work today, but just wanted to say huge thanks to Pete and Steve for their help and support over the weekend at the Return of the Garrison show.  We had so much interest in the models and loads of questions, photo taking etc.  Great to meet so many enthused people.

 

I have a load of pictures and some video (although my original vlog idea wont work out I don't think, but should be able to put something together) which I will start sorting out very shortly.

 

We also managed to raise £335 for Warwick Davies "Little People UK" charity through the raffle, which was only possible with the massive effort and generous contribution of Pete, who had built up several huge kits which went into the raffle. And also managed to get some needed income for the group through a Lego lucky dip which Steve so generously contributed.

 

My daughter has now joined the Galactic Academy and is already planning her costume for next year.  She was out Trooping with everyone in the parades and posing with all the characters, so looks like we'll be back in Leicester again.  So book you're place now for the team!
