Jo Cox MP was killed a year ago and over this weekend the UK is making sure that her words live on.
Gatherings, called the The Great Get Together are designed to unite people and to promote the tolerance of difference and celebration of diversity that Jo Cox championed.
In the studio we discussed what does #MoreInCommon mean to us, as a group in the studio and also what we have in common in our community…
Here in the studio we all appreciate struggle and feel unified by it- we’re all in the same boat
Sense of humour
Tea & Cake
We all love making
A need for appreciation
Our blood is all red
Skin that keeps me in, does not keep you out
A small smile
From the person at the till,
Or the bus driver,
A friendly word from the library assistant.
A cheerful exchange with a man
down a hole in the road.
A civil garage attendant.
And the moment,
The day, is changed.
One’s hope in all humanity is restored!
Pam Brown, 1928
Here are some celebrities sharing what they think unites us as a country…
There are events happening all around the country which you can find out about here- https://www.greatgettogether.org/
And if you can’t get to an event- take cake to your neighbour, share on social media what you think we all have in common using the #MoreInCommon, turn whatever you are doing this weekend in to a ‘Great Get Together’ and talk about what we have in common.
