Sentinel Squad UK in their own words: A registered Non Profit Organisation with Companies House We are a collective group of Star Wars fans spread across the UK but mainly focused in the Yorkshire area putting our bespoke armours and costumes to a greater purpose, we troop with the goal to help others not ourselves, we aim to raise charitable funds for the causes out there that unfortunately slip by the wayside, receive no government funding or have no major backing support, that’s why we give back to the charities we support 100% of what we raise. Sentinel Squad UK’s primary goal is ‘Trooping To Help Others’ to support the children’s charities, although this is a tough choice as there are so many worthy causes out there but hopefully the squad will continue to go from strength to strength and will one day manage to contribute to many of the charities far and wide. We have in the past six years collected and donated over £110K to various childrens charities.
We are sometimes asked why we do what we do, this could be so descriptive.. so to keep it short with two short answers.. We are just everday folks putting our passion and geekside for Star Wars to a great use.
Presenting the years collective funds to our current charities the appreaciation is phenomenal and to see their faces knowing it will make a very welcomed difference to those struggling makes every troop attended worth it’s weight in carbonite.

Results can vary sometimes lots of activity can occur & other times not so much. “We don’t pretend to be experts but we do guarantee no nonsense or fake activity from us. We use an assortment of equipment from talk boards to portal boxes and many other pieces in between.” They are professional and respectful of each other and any spirits who they come across.
