CHARITABLE multi-cultural groups have united to raise more than £30,000 to help the victims of the Japanese earthquake tsunami.
Since the devastating events of March 11, Japanese people across Cheshire have showed their support to help rebuild the country.
Armed with buckets, T-shirts, origami storks and even a Japanese Giant, the members of the North West Tsunami Appeal group, have hit the streets across Frodsham, Chester, Wilmslow and Macclesfield.
Now the group, headed by University of Chester drama teacher Naomi Green have raised £30,717 and they are still going strong.
Naomi said that the group have organised a special Japan Day in the hope to raise at least £10,000 more towards their aid appeal.
“We want to let the people of Chester enjoy a taste of Japan. There will be traditional food, drink, outfits, craft making, flower arranging and stories for children.
“We have been getting a lot of support from everyone, and I am sure lots of people will still want to help.”
The Japan Day will be held in Lymm Youth and Community Centre on April 30 from 12 to 5pm.
