The Emerald Garrison, Ireland's largest independent Star Wars costuming club has today announced a charity partnership with The Childhood Cancer Foundation.
With over 110 members, the critically acclaimed and award winning, not for profit organisation which boasts members from both sides of the border, regularly attend events and functions to the delight of the hundreds of thousands of Star Wars fans in Ireland and will raise valuable funds for the charity in the process.
Speaking about the announcement Gillian Smith, of the Childhood Cancer Foundation, said that "Partnering with the Emerald Garrison is a unique opportunity that will help to raise the profile of The Childhood Cancer Foundation through the many appearances that the Emerald Garrison perform during the year."
The Emerald Garrison will be appearing on behalf of the Childhood Cancer Foundation on the 31st May in Donegal for the All Ireland And International World Sheep Shearing Championships. They will also be appearing at the Curragh racecourse on the 13th September for Day 2 of Champions Weekend and at various other events throughout the year including the award winning Star Wars Invasion shows.
Many thanks also to Hamley’s Dundrum who gave a generous donation to Childhood Cancer Foundation last week and hosted a meet and greet with families affected by childhood cancer and Emerald Garrison members.
