Here’s a quick round up of the Iftars being held by members of Citizens UK Birmingham this weekend as part of the Great Get Together in memory of Jo Cox MP.
Joining us at one of these events was one of the key things that Citizens UK was asking candidates all over the country in the run up to the election. As it happens, some of the Birmingham candidates that we spoke to are attending Great Get Togethers even closer to their own doorstep. There are many other Great Get Togethers happening than just these three – it’s good that Brummies are spoilt for choice.
On Friday, University of Birmingham Islamic Society are hosting one from 9pm:
On Sunday, Aspire & Succeed leaders are part of this one in North-East Birmingham:
