Inspired by Jo Cox
The Great Get Together weekend will take place again on 19-21 June 2020, marking what would have been Jo’s 46th birthday. This will be the fourth time that hundreds of thousands of people up and down the country have got together to celebrate kindness, community, respect and the values we share.
The Great Get Together is inspired by Jo Cox, who was killed on 16 June 2016. In her first speech in Parliament, Jo said ‘we have more in common than that which divides us’. Through the Great Get Together, we ask people across the country to embrace Jo’s words, and come together to celebrate and connect with other members of their communities.
Jo’s family and friends first organised the Great Get Together in 2017, and since then we have seen millions of people across the country take part in thousands of events.
We also invite people to come together throughout the year. A key part of this is our #MincePieMoments Christmas campaign. You can stay up to date with news and community projects as they happen by signing up to our email updates.
