Let Us Send Love to Japan on March 11th!
We are almost approaching the 1st anniversary of the earthquake disaster in Japan but people over there are still suffering. Nobody could forget the disaster that rocked the country I love. The UK has arranged a whole host of events to raise awareness and funds for the country and I've rounded up some of them here. Lets send our prayers and best wishes to Japan on March 11th - the anniversary of the tsunami.
Japan Day in Chester
Nipponkai has arranged a day for all the family at the unity centre in Chester. Activities include musical performances, dressing up in traditional japanese clothing and the chance to send a message of support to those in Tohoku.
When - March 11th at the Unity Centre, Chester. Details here.
You Are Not Forgotten
An event to remember all those affected. Light candles in memory and show support for Japan. There'll also be a concert and activities for the children. This one is based in London.

The Japan-Cornwall Society Tsunami Charity Concert
The Japan-Cornwall Society will be presenting with the support of the Eden Project, the Japan Tsunami Charity Concert to be held on 16th March 2012 at the Eden Project, as March 11th will see the first anniversary of the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Disaster.
