Heads were certainly turned at Eastgate Shopping Centre in Inverness when Darth Vader, accompanied by two Stormtroopers, arrived to support a bucket collection in aid of CLIC Sargent.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manger Peter Logie was holding a collection all day, supported by some loyal volunteers who were also helping to promote CLIC Sargent’s upcoming Wig Wednesday event.
When Peter asked if Darth Vader would consider wearing a wig, the reaction was not very friendly...
Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers belong to The Rebel Legion, an international Star Wars costuming club formed in 1999 to celebrate the saga of the movies using handmade costumes and props.
Also providing great fun and music on the day were the Tin Pan Alley Band who kept feet tapping all afternoon with some high tempo swing band numbers that thoroughly entertained the shoppers.
The memorable day was a great success with a tremendous £815 donated to CLIC Sargent by the public.
