Photos: Sci-fi villains are a force for charity good
FAMOUS faces from the world of sci-fi swapped the nuclear wasteland of Skaro and the ice planet of Hoth for Yeovil last week.
Dr Who villains the Daleks invaded the town centre as part of the 10th anniversary celebrations of Yeo Leisure Park on Thursday.
An afternoon of celebrations took place at the leisure park with a 5k charity run and a laser display. The public were able to get up close to the feared aliens and meet the Doctor. All the money raised on the day was donated to St Margaret's Hospice.
Then on Saturday, Stormtroopers from Star Wars hit the high street to raise money for Yeovil District Hospital's Flying Colours Appeal.
