Remembering the Labour MP, wife and mother Jo Cox

One year ago today, the 41-year-old Labour member of Parliament Jo Cox was shot and stabbed in Birstall, in her Yorkshire constituency of Batley and Spen. To mark the first anniversary of her death, her family and friends have urged people to hold events that celebrate her life.

The Great Get Together, involving picnics, street parties and concerts, runs across this weekend. Organised by the Jo Cox Foundation, it aims to reinforce the message in her maiden speech in the House of Commons that “we have more in common than that which divides us”.

May she never be forgotten, may her family and friends be supported, and may the causes for which she campaigned go from strength to strength.
