'The Force' was with Sense when iconic actor Dave Prowse agreed to open a new charity shop on our behalf.
The Star Wars legend, famous for playing Darth Vader, added a unique touch by cutting the ribbon with his very own lightsabre!
By signing autographs and a little lightsabre jousting, Dave made the day special for everyone present, especially an eight-year-old boy who donned a Vader mask to greet him.
