Epworth boy Alexander Strong was represented in galactic fashion, at an open day that raised over £9,000 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Star Wars characters Captain Rex and stormtroopers, some of whom were at the young cancer victim’s funeral in January, were out in force.

Alex’s mother, Maxine Strong, said: “It was an amazing day, although emotional. It was great that the stormtroopers could attend for Alex, and that people could see the great work at Bluebell Wood.”

Claire Rintoul, Chief Executive at Bluebell Wood, said: “The Open Day was a fantastic chance for us to show people what their money and help provides.”
