The community in Penistone are coming together this Wednesday, Jo Cox’s birthday show support for her family and her philosophy that we have far #moreincommon with each other than that which divides us. We intend to gather to celebrate her life, her warmth, love, energy, Yorkshire roots and her belief in the humanity of every person.
We are holding a drop-in coffee afternoon at the Penistone Leisure Centre between 4 and 5pm whilst our skating session is on. We think it is fitting that we hold it in the Centre which symbolises community strength, unity and vibrancy.
We invite the people of Penistone to come along for refreshments and to pledge to do something positive, to challenge hatred, to show love, compassion and tolerance. We will then send all our pledges to her family.
Any funds we raise will go to her fund at gofund.me/jocox or for those who cannot come along they can donate directly online.
Thanks for your support and hope to see you there.
