21 January 2018: TJC Fundraiser

Day to Commemorate the Chinese Labour Corps in World War 1

Shifu Liu with Tai Ji Circle presented a day of fabulous tai ji performances and hard qi gong demonstrations with tai ji and qi gong workshops. Thanks to everyone’s efforts we raised funds of  £866.10 towards the costs of the new memorial to be opened in the autumn that will commemorate the Chinese labourers who joined British and Allied troops in the First World War.

It will be erected in East London, at the Royal Albert Dock, Newham, facing due east towards the Chinese city of Jinan in Shandong Province, from where the majority of the CLC labourers originated.
