Ever since star wars came out in 1977 I was hooked. I was always interested in joining the star wars custume groups but never took the next step until last year,. So... I decided to go for the iconic look of being a stormtrooper from the film star wars A New Hope as they were my favourite characters  when I was a child. 

As I started my kit build,  Rod ( my stepfather) became very ill and sadly passed  away. Following the funeral service, I was reading through the order of service book when it dawned on me that  Rod had  passed away on May 4th. Being a star wars fan (may the fourth be with you), that's when I had the crazy idea of delivering mail  dressed in  my stormtrooper costume  for kidney research UK  in memory of my stepfather. 


Rod had a kidney transplant 20 years ago ,  he had Polycystic kidney disease and  had lost his father to the same disease at the age of 46, However with Rod it was other health issues that took his life. Rod is sadly missed, he was a very funny man with  a great sense of humour,  caring, and loving, and the best part, he made my mum happy.. 

I'm now part of the costume group called the UK Garrison  in which we volunteer for different charity events all over the UK
