Many thanks for the donations to our fundraising event last April

We are very sorry for reporting the results of our Japan Earthquake Fundraising Event, which took place in April 2016, extremely late. We also apologise that we haven’t updated this website frequently.

Thanks to donations made at AGM on and the fundraising event on 29th April, we raised 420.58 pounds in total and sent the fund to Japan Red Cross Society for the earthquake relief in Kumamoto prefecture in Japan.

Again, thank you so much for your donation and support!

Japan Earthquake Relief Fundraising Event 29/04/16

On behalf of Southampton University Japanese Society, I am writing to express our sincere condolence to those affected by the disastrous earthquakes in Kumamoto, Japan. Our sympathy also goes out to people affected by the powerful earthquakes in Northern Ecuador.  Aftershocks are still worrying – we really hope your family, relatives, friends and colleagues are all safe. Do get in touch with us if there is anything we can be of help.  The latest information on emergency relief efforts by the British Red Cross can be found at:

Miyuki (supervisor)

In response to the earthquake, we are going to hold a fundraising event on 29th April at SUSU Red brick area from 10am to 5pm.

We will collect the relief fund for the recent great earthquakes that struck South-west Japan (Kyushu-region) on 14th April. The victims are still suffering from the aftershocks – they need resources to survive and get back to normal. The fund collected will be sent to Japan Red Cross Society. We hope that many of you could visit our stand and help us a little bit to support the people in the affected areas. Please come along and bring your friends :)
