We had another successful Japan Day and would like to thank those who contributed their time, effort and skills and those who attended and enjoyed the day with us.
We would also like to report that £90.00 was raised for the Ishinomaki Children's Newspaper on the day. A total of £250.00 since last Japan Day will be donated to the Ishinomaki Children's Newspaper for their visit to Cambridge in March 2018. Thank you for your long term support for the children who suffered a lot from the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in March 2011.
