As previously publicised here, this weekend is to mark the anniversary of the murder of Jo Cox, MP, by showing we are NOT divided by faith, culture or ethnicity.
Some of the events happening in Sheffield are as follows:
Bake-Off at St Mark’s – Sat 17 June
On Saturday 17th June from 1:30 pm onwards, St Mark’s Church is holding a community event that includes a Bake-off Craft Fair, Community Café and lots, lots more as part of the Broomhill Festival.
We are doing this to celebrate ‘The Great Get Together’ weekend in honour of Jo Cox, who said; “We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.”
Judging of the Great Broomhill Bake-Off will run from 2 – 2:30 pm. If you want to enter please have your bakes at St Mark’s by 12.30.
The rest of the community event will start at 1:30pm with the Cafe then open all afternoon with musical interludes.
For more details about entering the Bake-Off please contact Jane Padget at St. Mark’s Church, or email firstname.lastname@example.org or mobile 07921863281. We need notice if you wish to enter the Bake-Off.
In celebration of Jo Cox’s belief that we have more in common than that which divides us, a community party and picnic is being held at Heeley City Farm on the 18th June, from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM, supported by HOPE not hate, Amnesty International, ASSIST Sheffield and City of Sanctuary.
There is an exciting programme of events, with storytelling, poetry, speakers, sports, games and activities. Music and dance acts will showcase the wide range of cultures in Sheffield. The event is free and open to all and we encourage people to bring and share picnics.
Brendan Cox said ‘[Jo] would hope that all of us make a resolution to do something in 2017 to bring our communities back together’. There will be a one-minute silence at 1 pm in memory of Jo Cox.
Let Us Know You Plan to Come!
You don’t need to reserve a place, but it helps us estimate how many people will come.
If you know of other events, please let us know and we can publicise them here. Sheffield Interfaith is not organising any events, we shall join the above, and encourage to you to do so too.
