Sunday 11th March: 1st Anniversary of The Great East Japan Earthquake


I don’t think you’ll need reminding that this Sunday will mark the one year anniversary of the Fukushima tragedy in Japan, which saw thousands of people lose their lives and homes. Many bodies are yet to be found and reunited with their families and most people who were displaced still cannot return home.

The rest of the world has continued to show its support for Japan and the UK is no exception. There are a number of fundraising events going on around the country this week and I have pulled together a list of the ones I’ve managed to find. Hopefully you’ll be able to attend one of them but don’t worry if you can’t – you’ll be able to donate money another way.

This is by no means a complete list but the wealth of events here illustrate that people over here are still thinking about Japan. If you can’t see any events near you listed in here, get in touch with your nearest Japan Society or university society and see what you can find. If you have any events to add to this list, leave a comment below and I will update.
