So My friend Andy Reynolds made a rather funny poster out of the Family Guy Star Wars ‘Its a Trap’ Poster.

The Costume

So I have gone for a Generic Jedi Knight outfit. I decided to not get one handmade or purchase the most expensive and lavish design due to the high probability this will get wrecked along the way. The outfit consists of an inner brown tunic, with a cotton white tunic over the top.  On top of […]

The JEDI JOGLE

24.02.17

My name is Daryl Haynes, a 27yr old Royal Navy Police Officer.  Recently I decided that I wanted to do something for charity due to my Grandmother passing away July 2016.  As we all know cancer is a horrible disease and will effect 1 in 3 of us at some point in our lives directly or not. Macmillan Cancer Support gave my Gran the dignity and care she so deserved during her last few days, their palliative care delivered by their outstanding nurses being excellent. So I have opted to fundraise for them.

I also decided to raise money for the not so well known Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity.  Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years of age with a life threatening or terminal illness.

Today there are an estimated 49,000 children and young people in the UK living with a life limiting or life threatening condition who may require palliative care (University of Leeds, 2011). Many of these children and their families are able to cope or are not in a ‘crisis situation’. However, thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis.

For these charities I decided I would walk the length of the country, I love being outdoors and decided it would amount to a unique challenge.  My work  graciously decided to give me the time off and a plan was set in motion, initially I was going to walk in normal walking gear but this is done surprisingly frequently and I would prefer to stand out in order to support these great causes, so while a few might think it gimmicky I opted to get Star Wars geeky and do it as a Jedi Knight!
