Tower Hamlets Council Grants for The Great Get Together – In Honour of Jo Cox
posted: Thu 30 Mar 17
The Friends and Family of Jo Cox have come up with the initiative to invite people to get together with their neighbours to share food and celebrate all that we hold in common, to mark the first anniversary of her murder. The initiative is being backed by the Big Lunch and a wide range of organisations.
The Council is inviting the community to organise street parties and community get togethers to show that the people of Tower Hamlets are united in solidarity against those who seek to divide us.
Due to Ramadan, we are offering 2 weekends for the Great Get Together events; 17/18 June and 8/9 July.
Small grants of up to £250 are offered towards events organised to mark this occasion.
The application form is available here: www.towerhamletsarts.org.uk
The deadline for the applications is Thursday 27th April at 12:00 midday. Applications must be made via the correct application form.
