Characters from the Star Wars movies arrived in Pevensey on the May Day bank holiday to support and raise funds for charity.

Debby Fitton landlady of the Royal Oak & Castle organised the day with Dean from M&S Accessories in Hailsham, who was able to supply a life size C3P0 and R2D2 and along with friends and members of the Iconic Legion brought along Obi Wan Kenobi, Storm Troopers, Boba Fett and Darth Vader to delight the crowds of tourists and locals.

The characters wandered around the historic market square, waved at passers-by and had a photo call at the East gate of Pevensey Castle.

Myeloma UK, the charity chosen as it is close to the hearts of several members of staff at the Royal Oak & Castle, will benefit from the £143.95 raised on the day.

Visitors were invited to have their photo taken with the characters in return for a donation & eat Star wars inspired food such as Han Burgers and Hoth Dogs along with Chewbacca chips.

A proportion of profit from the sale of these food items was also donated by the pub to bring the total raised to £200.

May 4 has become traditionally known as May the Fourth be with You day around the globe because of the popular saying in the films with fans of the space fantasy adventure dressing up as characters.

Myeloma, also known as multiple myeloma, is a cancer arising from plasma cells, a type of white blood cell which is made in the bone marrow, material found in the centre of the larger bones in the body.

Unlike many cancers, myeloma does not exist as a lump or tumour. Most of the medical problems related to it are caused by the build-up of the abnormal plasma cells in the bone marrow and the presence of the paraprotein in the blood or in the urine.

Myeloma affects multiple places in the body where bone marrow is normally active in an adult such as within the bones of the spine, skull, pelvis, the rib cage, long bones of the arms and legs and the shoulders and hip areas.
