Jedi Knights and Storm Troopers will invade a comic book shop to help raise money for a children’s charity today.

To mark Stars Wars Day and Free Comic Book Day, customers will be able to pick up a freebie at Calamity Comics in Springfield Road, Harrow.

Joining thousands of shops around the world, the store will give out free comic books from 10am-6pm.

People will be encouraged to give donations to raise money for the Rainbow Trust which provides support for families with terminally ill children.

The Star Wars characters will also be posing for photographs.
