Get Togethers prove we have more in common

Residents across South Leeds came together for a series of Great Get Together events last weekend (22-25 June 2018).

The events are promoted by the Jo Cox Foundation in memory of the Labour MP who was murdered during the 2016 general election campaign. In her maiden speech to Parliament, Jo Cox MP said:

“We are far more united and have more in common than that which divides us.”

Events were organised at Dewsbury Road and St George’s community hubs; Middleton Park, Beeston’s Hamara Centre and St Matthew’s Community Centre in Holbeck.

Each event included a range of food, entertainment and activities to help people from different backgrounds mix and meet new friends.
