Imperial Stormtroopers on Patrol in Wakefield

‘These are not the droids you are looking for’ – Imperial Stormtroopers spotted outside Debenhams.

'These are not the droids you are looking for' - Imperial Stormtroopers spotted outside Debenams in Wakefield.

Of course the above line is from Star Wars Episode IV – A New Hope when Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi are talking their way past an imperial checkpoint at Mos Eisley Spaceport on Tatooine. However, instead of that ‘wretched hive of scum and villainy’ (another line from the film) they were outside Debenhams in Trinity Walk, Wakefield.  Judging by the presence of the person with the green buckets nearby it seems that rather than looking for the Death Start plans this time they were helping to raise money for charity. So good of the Imperial Starfleet to send personnel the assist in such a mission. The Empire cannot be all that bad!

UPDATE: Looked on Twitter and it seems that they were collecting for Wakefield Hospice – a very worthy cause. And TrinityWalk has it on its website – shows how much I have kept up with current events in Wakefield this week!
