U.K. Subs Time & Matter website charity money received in Japan
Third recipient receives £1,000
T&M is delighted to announce that we have donated £1,000 to our third charitable cause.
Consisting of part of the profits from the sale of T&M Recordings’ 7” single 'Product Supply' and ALL the profits from the recent 'Official U.K. Subs 2012 Calendar' - the money was recently sent to a ‘local’ charity ‘on the ground’, helping out the people around Fukushima in Japan, through their ethical operation.
The organisation is called 'NBC Operation' and the money has been sent to Ko Slang, who arranges to send help and provisions to the little villages in and around the areas where help is needed most. Ko also helps people with disability from Fukushima and also provides them with some form of employment to make them independent.

Beside this magnanimous work, the NBC Operation headquarters deals with charity t-shirts, animal protection goods, 'stop abusing children' goods and merchandise from disabled peoples institutions. Each sale helps the various causes and the charity is constantly looking to encourage and initiate more activities with many more ideas and devices to approach the multitude of problems currently ongoing within the beleaguered Japanese society.
