Jeremy Corbyn took time out of his busy election campaign to visit the Liverpool Wah Sing Community Centre today.
Read Jeremy’s post from Facebook below:
“Today, we paused from our General Election campaigning for an hour from midday. People from all parties paid tribute to local groups working to unite communities across the country, demonstrating Jo Cox’s belief that we have more in common than that which divides us.
I visited Pagoda Arts and the Wah Sing Chinese Community Centre. They work to introduce Chinese Culture, through a selection of classes and activities, to people from all backgrounds and all faiths, and none, in Liverpool. They provide services for people of all ages, and host cultural festivals and provide a space for local disabled groups to meet.
It was enlightening meeting and talking with the workers and volunteers who keep this centre running, and those who use and benefit from its services.
There are tens-of-thousands of places like this across our country and the workers and volunteers who keep them running are invaluable to our society. They bring us together and enrich our lives. And they, often unknowingly, celebrate our diversity, create cohesion in our communities and reinforce that we have more in common than that which divides us.
Today’s period of reflection, is ahead of the #GreatGetTogether, organised by Brendan Cox, which will take place between 16 and 18 June. Find out more here: http://www.greatgettogether.org.”
