NAS Isle of Wight
As a branch, we have benefitted from some very generous organisations raising money for us recently.
The Vectis Remnant Squad
The Vectis Remnant Squad (VRS) started way back in 2003 as the Isle of Wight Star Wars Costuming Club. It was the brainchild of 2 like-minded Islanders with a passion for both the Star Wars Universe and for costuming in general.
The Squad has now grown from 2 members and 2 costumes to over a dozen members and well over 2 dozen screen-accurate costumes, not to mention everyone's favourite pair of droids !!
The group's aim is to raise money for local charities whilst also promoting the Star Wars Universe and adding a little colour and diversity to local events.
We were delighted that the VRS decided to make us their chosen charity for 2012 and we are already reaping the benefits from their fundraising efforts, public apperances and Grand Prize Draw of Star Wars memorabilia. A HUGE thank you to all the squad for their continued support.
