Getting to the heart of Star Wars

A NEW piece of Star Wars memorabilia is now available from a Morpeth building society.

The Leeds Building Society branch in Bridge Street is selling the Gold Heart badges featuring characters C-3PO and R2-D2 in aid of children’s charity Variety.

The badges are available until the end of February for a suggested donation of £1.

The fund-raiser coincides with the 3D release of Star Wars Episode 1 — The Phantom Menace.

Variety Head of Fund-raising Helen Bournat said: “We are dedicated to improving the lives of disabled and disadvantaged children across the UK.

“The funds raised through the golden heart badge campaign at the Leeds Building Society Morpeth branch will help us meet the special needs of more children in Morpeth and across the UK.”
