Over to Neil Ellis, who works in the Star Wars art department as a concept model maker, and as a Costume FX prop maker. Most recently he’s worked on Star Wars: The Force AwakensRogue One: A Star Wars Story, Episode VIII and currently on the yet untitled Han Solo film.

I’m giving Star Wars fans the chance to win a truly amazing prize, by entering into a raffle, with the proceeds going to the disability charity Sense.

I’ve spent the last 8 months collecting the autographs of the cast and crew of Star WarsThe Force Awakens, including Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Kenny Baker and JJ Abrams.! The autograph book, displayed in a unique bronze-cast presentation box, created by myself, will be given away on 4 May 2017, Star Wars Day. So far I have almost 150 autographs and I haven’t stopped collecting yet!

To enter the raffle and have a chance of winning this prize, please make a donation of £5 at this JustGiving page – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Autograph-Book

IMPORTANT… Once your donation has gone through, please tick the box alongside “I’m happy to be contacted”. JustGiving can then share your contact details with me and you will be entered into the raffle.
The winner of the prize will be announced publicly on the Sense website, Facebook and Twitter channels on 4 May 2017. They will also be emailed directly to make arrangements for delivery.

You can read about the history of the project including a full list of who has signed and photos of each autograph on a blog that I have been keeping. Follow the blog or the Facebook Page to be kept up to date on who else I add between now and the draw… there should be a few more big names in there!

Don’t forget to SHARE the Facebook page too.

Thanks for reading and may the force be with you!
