More In Common Batley & Spen

Community activities as part of Jo Cox’s legacy. Aim to tackle loneliness and to bring people together. We organise and run several annual events as part of the Great Get Together with the Jo Cox Foundation. Locally, these include community events, such as Cake on the Cobbles in Batley, the Batley Iftar, support for the annual Jo Cox Way bike ride from Spen to London, Step Into the Future, which is an event to bring schools together in June, and our headline event Run For Jo which takes place at Oakwell Hall. People ae encouraged to sign up for a 6.5k or 2.5k run on or help organise the event that also includes activities, stalls and a mascot race.
