She said: “We shall also be celebrating Father's Day and are taking song requests in advance. The Facebook link to join is Stevie Moore or Patricia Lynn Moore.”

Over June 18 to June 20, the Great Get Together movement aims to bring people together to celebrate new connections and Jo Cox's #MoreInCommon message - now more important than ever.

June 16 marks five years since the brutal murder of the Labour politician by a neo-Nazi extremist in a quiet Yorkshire market town.

Her family then created the Jo Cox Foundation in their bid to ensure some good came out of the tragedy.

In Cox's maiden speech at the House of Commons a year before her death, she delivered her More in Common message, a phrase that has now been coined by the foundation to continue her legacy.
