Mitchell’s Miracles was invited by our direct sponsors UK Garrison to attend MCM Comic Con at the Excel London.

Of we went Friday 25th May with two volunteers Claire & Jade. What a fun day we had whilst collecting so many donations.

Chewbacca was a big hit.

Chewbacca was a big attraction and had hundreds wanting a photo opportunity. Chewbacca stood by our banner when he could, so we was in the background of anyone taking photos.

Chewy never got more than a few steps around the Excel. He would stand by our banner when he could. Everyone wanted a picture taken with our chewy and in return they would make a donation.

The Silver Sabres

The Silver Sabres were giving out free combat lessons to the public and in return asking for donations. They heavily supported us all over the weekend. Thank you Silver Sabres.

We returned on a very hot sunny Saturday, but unfortunately we had no volunteers so we were rushed of our feet. That did not stop us having a busy but great day.

We followed our favourite Wookie around the Excel and walked around with some of the amazing Storm Troopers.

Being a part of the MCM Comic Con weekend was such an amazing opportunity. We loved seeing so many people dressed up as their favourite characters.

As we had such a great time Friday & Saturday we went back for more on the Sunday. This time we was joined by our volunteer Kenna.

This was Kenna’s first time at the Excel, and she was mesmerised just like we were when we first arrived on the Friday.

The founder of Mitchell’s Miracles Kristel Huth was chased around the Excel by Darth Maul, which really made us all laugh.

But best of all we raised an AMAZING £2181.30. This is such a fantastic amount and will go along way to helping families affected by Neuroblastoma childhood cancer.


If we are given this amazing opportunity to return to the MCM Comic Con with UK Garrison, we will be in need of volunteers.

Being a volunteer for Mitchell’s Miracles would  make the day run  more smoothly and help us raise more donations.

A quote from Kenna our volunteer “I felt like I’ve done something good today in raising funds for families going through this dreadful journey, and I would be happy to help again in the future”.
