Hope Not Hate

Home » News » Hope Not Hate

At the request of Jo Cox's family, one of the three charities receiving money raised in memory of the MP, is Hope Not Hate. In Aylesbury, this charity was at the forefront of the campaign last October to nullify the unwanted visit to the town of the English Defence League. It provided the idea and materials for all the paper swans you may have seen around the town that weekend, made by Aylesbury's various faith groups.

Nick Lowles, from Hope Not Hate said, "Whatever funds we receive from donations in Jo's memory will be used to support our work in exposing and combating extremism, and in strengthening our many regional projects and teams to foster greater dialogue and understanding between (all too often) divided communities. More specifically, we will launch a campaign this summer to heal some of the divisions in society that have opened up during the increasingly toxic and bitter referendum campaign."
