Come along and join The Great Get Together celebration

Great get together lunch

Emmaus Colchester has teamed up with GO4 Market Café in Colchester to bring local people together for this year’s Great Get Together, in memory of MP, Jo Cox.

On Saturday 17 June Emmaus Colchester and GO4 Market Café will host a Great Get Together event at the recreation ground, on Recreation Road, Colchester, and the whole community are invited to come along. The Great Get Together is about bringing people from local communities together to have fun and celebrate all that we hold in common.  

At the event there will be live music, upcycling activities, freshly made paella and many other activities for people to get involved in. You can even bring your own favourite dish to share with friends. GO4 Market Café is also offering the opportunity for people to buy a pre-paid breakfast for someone in need to enjoy.

Gintare Petrauskaite, Community Manager said:

“In light of the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London this event is the perfect way to unite our community and stand together.

This event is about coming together with the rest of the community and having a good time”.

Emmaus Colchester supports formerly 31 homeless people by giving them a home, meaningful work in a social enterprise and an opportunity to regain lost self-esteem to help rebuild their lives.
