Thank you so much for being part of The Great Get Together 2018 and for making it such a wonderful, unforgettable experience. You’re amazing!
Because of your support we came together across every part of the UK to celebrate the power of our amazing communities and, in doing so, showed that far more unites us than divides us – and that there is hope.
Over the weekend we were flooded with stories of neighbours meeting for the first time, friendships rekindled and meals shared together. We also saw literally thousands upon thousands of photos sent to us of communities coming together.
Below is a small snapshot of what happened across the country from 22-24 June 2018.
These photos show how powerful it is to bring our communities together and celebrate what we have in common. We couldn’t have done this any better this year.
Stories from Get Togethers
We heard so many gorgeous stories from Get Togethers which we found particularly uplifting. Here are just a few, a sample from across the country, that we’d like to share with you.
“We may have a difference of opinion when it comes to politics but at the end of the day, there is far more that unites us, than divides us.” – Eva
“It’s a reminder to us all how important it is that events like these continue, not just for our community but all around the country to break down barriers and build on social integration.” – Sheikh Irfan Soni
“For the second year running, The Great Get Together has proven that for all of the bad news in the world, we really do have more in common and you can’t get better than the UK for community spirit.” – Lauren
To share this truly extraordinary weekend with you, we have put together a video showcasing just a tiny fraction of all that happened over the weekend. You can watch it here and relive some of the magic of the weekend.
A HUGE THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE!
