The sci-fi magic of Star Wars will be taking over three charity shops to help boost fundraising efforts.
The Sense charity shops in Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and Hunstanton will be taken over by Jedis, stormtroopers and Darth Vader from Monday for a week.
The shops, which raise money to support people who are deafblind, have sensory impairments and complex needs, will be running Star Wars-themed activities for children and families throughout the Easter week, including sensory games, treasure hunts, creative writing sessions and a drawing competition.
Staff will be promoting a prize draw to win an autograph book donated by lifelong Star Wars fan, Neil Ellis.
The 43 year-old Lucasfilm employee has spent a year collecting the celebrity signatures of the likes of Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. On May 4, a winner will be chosen, with proceeds to Sense.
