Near Neighbours is a charity that has been bringing people together in diverse areas across the country since 2011. That we have more in common than divides us is at the core of what we do. By hosting a Great Get Together with Near Neighbours you can join a movement of people across the country that have been celebrating our diversity for years.
We have joined with the Jo Cox Foundation to invite you to hold a Great Get Together in your community. Inspired by Jo Cox MP, the Great Get Together is encouraging people to host street parties across the country to celebrate all that we have in common with our neighbours.
In that spirit, her family and friends are inviting people across the country to mark the anniversary of her murder by organising or attending a celebration in their community on 16-18 June 2017.
Archbishop Justin has commended the Great Get Together and is encouraging groups to get involved through Near Neighbours, a programme that has been bringing people together in this vein since 2011. This is Archbishop Justin’s message to you:
“I encourage you whole heartedly to host a Great Get Together in your community and to do so in partnership with Near Neighbours, whose inspiring work has enabled local communities across the country to work and live together effectively.”
