... For Japan

It gives me great pleasure to announce last week's four-day Charity Arts Fundraiser, "Send My Love to Everyone in Japan" raised over £700 for the Red Cross Japanese Tsunami Appeal! On behalf of all the organisers, I must thank everyone again who showed their support on our opening night last Thursday as well as over the weekend. Raffle winners will be contacted within the week to make arrangements for art collection at Quare, 21 Folgate Street E1 6BX. While the international media may have lowered the priority on covering the devastation in Northern Japan, it is critical to remember the ever-changing situation which is affecting the everyday lives of the Japanese people is far from over, and it is only the beginning, in the coming months and years, for the nation to rebuild and rise again - near and far, our thoughts and are with everyone in Japan.
