HOPE not hate

Over 100 people created paper doves in memory of Jo Cox last Saturday at St Philip’s cathedral in Birmingham.

We screened a film showing different aspects of Jo Cox's life – as a mother, MP and campaigner – and two huge maps of Birmingham and the world where people played a prayer, showing that no matter where we had all come from, it was Birmingham that had brought us together.

Schools and visitors had been asked prior to the event to make 'a dove 4 jo' and bring it along on the day. There were so many doves hat we didn't have enough time to put them up on the tree which had been planted by Princess Diana more than two decades ago (the team had to put them up the following day to). Others made doves on the day and hung them on a 'special' tree.

We had live music played by different local artists and the Lord Mayor, the Bishop of Birmingham and more than 100 others who attended the event – a fantastic day for all.
