PART 2 - NEW FINAL COLLECTION TOTAL: £380-10 (27/12/11)
ON THE WINTER TOUR YUKO WAS AGAIN COLLECTING DONATIONS...
Money being donated to the Fukushima area of Japan: INFO HERE
Following the horrific events in Japan, in March 2011, in which U.K. Subs guitarist Jet was present, but survived, Charlie and Yuko asked for information to be made available on the Time & Matter homepage about how to donate to the Japanese relief efforts.
Yuko then had a 'Japanese earthquake relief fund' donation box on her merchandise stall at every Subs gig up to and including this year's Rebellion Festival in Blackpool on 7th August.
The total money counted from the box was £525-60.
Subs fans continued to support the fund with lots of donations, both big or small.
Jet himself expressed his wish that, "...if any Subs fans would like to donate, but can't make it to any of our gigs, then please donate via the Japanese Red Cross..." This is still applicable!
Jet also decided to auction one of his guitars on the Time & Matter website, with 100% of the winning bid going to help the people of Japan, that exciting auction concluded with a further £750-00 raised through Mark Jones' generous winning bid.

The band and Yuko would like to acknowledge everybody who has so far made a donation.
Specific thanks are archive HERE
THE FINAL TOTAL RAISED DURING THE SUMMER VIA THE BAND AND THE DONATIONS BOX WAS £1,336-60
Additional to the U.K. Subs' Japanese earthquake relief fund donation box, the U.K. Subs Time & Matter website donated all profits from the sale of its U.K. Subs Double DVD 'Tour In Progress' to help Jet's family in Japan. Total profit from that DVD was £730. T&Ms Product Supply single, plus promo copies and white labels along with the latest T&M charity release, the Official U.K. Subs 2012 calendar will see us raise a further £1,000+ to donate to Japan. (...see news story below too!!)
Punkerama Records are also donating money from their releases: click here for info
Time & Matter website would like to thank every Subs fan out there who has helped this vital cause. Together we have raised around £3,000 for the people of Japan, and hopefully we can continue to raise lots MORE!
