As part of the Great Get Together – organised by the Jo Cox Foundation – over 140 friends and neighbours from the wider community joined Cheadle Mosque for “Dinner at Dusk” on Friday 16th June. St Ann’s staff and volunteers were amongst those invited to attend.
Inspired by the tragic death of Jo one year ago, the event celebrated our one humanity and shared an insight into the Muslim faith. We broke the Ramadan fast together at sunset, and then shared a lovely meal.
Members of the mosque organised this wonderful event, and Kathy Collins, Volunteer Manager, was invited as one of 5 guest speakers from local charities and organisations. Kathy spoke about the work of St Ann’s and the role that volunteers play in supporting the hospice.
The evening, full of warmth, humour and hope for the future, demonstrated that, in Jo’s words, “We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us.”
We would like to thank Cheadle Mosque for their kind invitation and for their continued support of St Ann’s.
