Holiday Extras’ Star Wars-themed fundraiser

Intergalactic force collects £264 for cancer and local hospices

May the 4th be with you
May the 4th be with you HQ was taken over by the Galactic Empire today in a bid to raise cash for Cancer Research UK and the Pilgrims Hospices.

The Star Wars-themed fundraiser, ‘May the 4th be with you’, saw the Holiday Extras team dress as their favourite characters from the films. Those who didn’t venture forth were fined £1.

The Charity Team also organised face-painting, a Star Wars-themed quiz and a bake-sale of Star Wars-themed cakes, which all helped to raise a grand total of £264.

Matthew Paxton, COO at, commented: “The force was definitely with us today – we’ve raised an impressive amount for two worthwhile causes.

“It’s been a really fun day and there seems to be a lot of Star Wars fans who’ve crept out of the woodwork … or should I say, the galaxy.”
