As part of our volunteers visit to Japan, David, Alex and Zak took part in a fundraising event in Osaka.
Prior to this, the boys took the opportunity to visit Osaka castle to enjoy both its history as well as the breathtaking views.
Meeting the president of the local Rotary Club, our volunteers were treated to dinner before the event itself began. The president gave a speech and the boys performed ‘Hey Jude’ and ‘Come together’. There was also a French family there who gave a speech about their experience in Japan whose daughter had stayed in Japan on an exchange sponsored by the Rotarians for a year.

This summer, Aid For Japan will be bringing some of the orphans of the 2011 tsunami/earthquake to the UK.
As part of this plan, our three young volunteers have flown out to Japan as part of a mission to help raise funds for the charity – and also raise awareness of its goals. David, Alex and Zak (who are all in their teens) will be tracking their progress on a special blog which will have regular updates on their travels. Once their visit to Japan is complete, David, Alex and Zak will be returning to the UK on the same plane as the orphans.
