A memorial celebration is being held for the late MP Jo Cox in Dukinfield next month.

The event will take place on Saturday, March 18, at Dukinfield Town Hall on King Street.

It has been organised by Stalybridge and Hyde’s Women’s Forum to celebrate the life and work of Jo Cox, who was tragically killed outside a library in her West Yorkshire constituency last year.

Libby Lane, the Bishop of Stockport, will be the special guest.

There will be an afternoon tea between 2pm and 4pm. Tickets are £10 but if you want to support the event and cannot attend, supporter tickets are available for £5.

All proceeds will go to the Jo Cox Foundation Charities – The Royal Voluntary Service, HOPE not hate and The White Helmets – which support community work across the world.
