Shane donates his time, use of his van and his staff, to help those in need for free. He supports people and families in times of need after house fires, urgent house moves and even those just setting up homes for the arrival of a new baby.

Shane’s vans are well known for their involvement in many charity and voluntary events. Alongside this, he continues to raise money for charities dressed as a Star Wars character and can often be seen up and down the country most weekends raising money for many different charities dressed in his Stormtrooper outfit.

He has also set up the Moon Gazer project, which aims to recycle items that will help to produce food for people in need and the local community. The project grows its own fruit and vegetables to help sustain the needs of local people. Last year Shane donated more than 25 food hampers to people in the local community, all provided by him to help families struggling at Christmas time. This year as part of the Moon Gazer Project he hopes to double the number of hampers and have more people and staff helping him support local people.
