Brent Great Get Together
Celebrate diversity and community with Brent Great Get Together
The Great Get Together was inspired by the murdered MP Jo Cox who lived her life spreading her belief that we have more in common than divides us. This year it will take place on 21-23 June 2019, the weekend that would have been Jo’s 45th birthday.It’s an opportunity to celebrate kindness, respect and all that we have in common.
Grants of up to £500 are now available for resident groups and community organisations wanting to run a community lunch, barbecue, picnic, or coffee morning.We understand that not everybody will be able to celebrate on the weekend itself, so we are also accepting applications for events on the subsequent two weekends 28-30th June and 5-7th July 2019.
Last year, we helped over 75 local groups to ‘get together’, and we hope even more residents will get involved this year!
For more information, please see our guidance notes.
Applications have now closed. Thank you to everyone who applied, we will be in touch shortly.
