This year will be The Jo Cox Foundation’s sixth Great Get Together since the MP was murdered in her constituency of Batley and Spen.

Events will take place across the country inspired by the message from her very first speech in Parliament: “We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.”

Su Moore, CEO of The Jo Cox Foundation, said: “No two Great Get Togethers are the same but they all bring Jo’s message of unity to life. They help people to realise what they have in common, whether that’s with a next-door neighbour or a refugee in another country.”
