Every year, since 1989 "The Party Project" has organised a Charity Christmas Party. "The Party Project" are a group of volunteer Japanese and foreigners who want to help the community. All aspects of preparation for the party and the running the party itself are done by volunteers.
Over the past ten years money has gone to various orphanages, homes for the handicapped and homes for the elderly, etc. The Charity Christmas Party has already made about 16.9 million yen for local charities in the Saga areas.
