Remembering Jo Cox

Home » News » Remembering Jo Cox

Aylesbury-based charity, Karibuni Children, is holding their Family Fun Day on 17th June. In common with several other charities, it sees this as a good opportunity to be part of The Great Get Together to commemorate Jo Cox M.P. and the view she expressed in her famous maiden speech about people in the UK having "far more in common with each other than things that divide us". Jo's husband Brendan Cox said, "We wanted something that celebrated Jo's energy but also brought the community together, That could be picnics on your village green, street parties, shared barbecues, community bake-offs. The basic idea is to get together and have fun." So the annual Karibuni Children Family Fun Day on June 17th from 11am to 4pm at the Fairford Leys Community centre enables people to do just that..
As well as street parties, other charities including the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, NSPCC, Women's Institute, Help for Heroes and RNLI are planning their own events.
