On Friday March 11th a huge 9.0 magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of a country which all hold dear to our hearts, Japan.

The resulting tsunami has claimed the lives of over 10,000 people and just under 17,500 are still missing (according to reports at the time of writing). Many survivors have been left homeless by the disaster, as well as making many children orphans.

Being the country which is the origin of the hobby which unites this website, many of you may feel an affinity with Japan and may wish to donate to the relief effort. You can do so by visiting the British Red Cross website here - http://www.redcross.org.uk/Donate-Now/Make-a-single-donation/Japan-Tsuna...

Thank you.
