Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.

I'm giving Star Wars fans the chance to win a truly amazing prize, by entering into a prize-draw, with the proceeds going to the disability charity Sense.

I've spent the last 10 months collecting the autographs of the cast and crew of Star Wars - The Force Awakens, including Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and JJ Abrams. The autograph book, displayed in a unique bronze-cast presentation box, created by myself, will be given away on 4 May 2017, Star Wars Day. So far I have 150 autographs and I haven't stopped collecting yet!

To enter the prize-draw and have a chance of winning, please make a minimum donation of £5 to this page.

IMPORTANT ... Please provide your full name and ensure that you tick the box alongside “I'm happy to be contacted". JustGiving can then share your contact details with me and you will be entered into the raffle.

The winner of the prize will be announced publicly on the Sense website, Facebook and Twitter channels on 4 May 2017. They will also be emailed directly to make arrangements for delivery.

You can read about the history of the project including a full list of who has signed and photos of each autograph on a blog that I have been keeping here:

1. The closing date is 2 May 2017. The winner will be announced and contacted on 4 May 2017

2. Only one entry can be made per person

3. No purchase necessary but please consider making a suggested minimum donation of £5 to Sense.

4. The prize draw is open worldwide - with the exception of any Sense employees

6. The winner will be notified by email or telephone (using the details provided at entry). Following notification, the winner will be required to provide full details of their postal address to which the prize will be delivered.

7. If the winner cannot be contacted (via the details provided at the date of entry) within a reasonable period of time or (ii) the winner does not return details of its postal address within 14 days of notification that they have won the Prize, a re-draw will take place to find a new winner. This process will continue until a winner on these terms is found.
