Star Wars enthusiast raising money for children with disabilities

Jacob Johnson

The force is strong with one Cantabrian this May the Fourth, who is trying to make a difference.

Known to fans of the franchise as Star Wars Day, it's an opportunity to celebrate the intergalactic saga.

But one loyal fan is suiting up for a nobler cause today to raise money for children with disabilites.

The story was part of a programme broadcast onĀ Plains 96.9 FM, Canterbury's community access radio station.
