As you might know, early in July, West Japan was hit by torrential rain at ‘beyond expectation’ scale. It was the worst flooding since 1983- Over 200 lives have been lost. People lost their family and friends unexpectedly. The pain of those people are unimaginable.

Thousands of people are still evacuated and are living in local shelters with limited resources. And many people have no home to go back to.

On 1st September, we will be organizing ‘Pop up shop’ in Islington to DO WHAT WE CAN as Team UK. Fortunately we have several fantastically talented professionals on board to collaborate on the day.

You can help us raising fund for people in West Japan by just pop in to the shop and enjoy pampering yourself or entertaining yourself by performances and give what you can!
