Sir David Amess MP has added his support to this year's Great Get Together and is encouraging communities across Southend to get involved and help bring people together.
On the weekend of June 21st-23rd, communities up and down the country will be getting together to celebrate kindness, respect and all we have in common. To celebrate the legacy of the late Jo Cox MP, this year's theme is 'Let's Get Back Together'. 'Whatever your opinion on Brexit or the state of the country, one thing that unites us above all is the strength of Jo's values- and the belief that we have 'more in common' explained Catherine Anderson, CEO of the Jo Cox Foundation.
Sir David is encouraging everyone in Southend to get involved and organise events in the community, workplace or school. Further details on how to put on a Great Get Together event or find out what is happening across Southend can be found at https://www.greatgettogether.org/.
