For some, the 4th of May is just a regular day but for avid Star Wars fans like store director Andrew Lewis, it is the opportunity to celebrate all things Star Wars. 

This year, he has combined his passion with a fund raising idea, and hopes residents of Guildford will 'Feel the Force' and donate to Guide Dogs for the Blind.

A man of many talents

Andrew's day job is running the very busy Guildford store and conducting eye tests in his capacity as an optometrist.  

When he switches off in an evening, he can be found creating all kinds of wonderful gadgets.  Two such creations are his C-3PO and R2-D2 pictured here. 

He has given them prime positioning in the store and is inviting people to take a selfie throughout May with his friends in return for making any donation - large or small - to the charity, Guide Dogs for the Blind.

He says...

'My colleagues suggested that I brought the characters into the store to try and raise a little bit of money for a charity close to all our hearts.  I hope they bring a smile to people's faces if nothing else!'
