Fundraisers for Japan

A couple of very different events are being held this week in the local area, with a common purpose - to raise funds for the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.

Friday 25th March, Kids Love Ink, 138 Deptford High Street
Japan Charity Tattoo Event
KLI says: Following the recent (and ongoing) tragic events in Japan we are doing another Charity Day, where all proceeds will be donated to a charity supporting the cause.

There will be a sheet of selected flash to choose from, which Xty is currently working on. The flash will also be available to buy as a print. Jane Dough Bakehouse will also be on hand to sell you cookies and cakes to keep you nicely sugared up!
We may extend this into an evening event, more info and designs to follow!

Saturday 26th March, Painted Chapel, Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich.
Classical music concert.

TrinityLaban in conjunction with the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, will stage a concert at 3pm in support of the Japanese Red Cross relief effort in North-Eastern Japan, following the recent horrific earthquake and tsunami. The concert will feature some of Trinity College of Music's Japanese students and others. Among the pieces to be performed will be the Requiem for String Orchestra by the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu.

The concert will not be ticketed, but there will be a retiring collection in aid of the Red Cross. All are welcome to this event, which is being held in the beautiful Chapel at the Old Royal Naval College, adjacent to Trinity College of Music and a short walk from Greenwich Cutty Sark DLR station.

Saturday is going to be a bit of a busy day with plenty of competing events - check out the alternatives over on Crosswhatfields blog.

There will also be another Japan charity event at the Birds Nest on hopefully May 22nd. It'll be an DIY punk alldayer with Vegan food etc., There has been a strong link between the UK & Japanese DIY punk/hardcore scenes since the 80's and I've made many great friends on my visits to Japan.
