In memory of MP Jo Cox

The Western Isles Labour Party has organised a gathering to pay tribute to Jo Cox the MP who was killed while on her way to hold a constituency surgery last Thursday.

People wishing to attend are asked to assemble at Perceval Square, Stornoway at 1pm for a 1.15pm start.

Politicians will return to Westminster today (Monday) to pay tribute to the Labour MP.

MPs, who had been in recess for the EU referendum, have been recalled to the Commons to remember Mrs Cox, 41, who was described as “perfect” by her family. The Lords are also returning.

They will then process to St Margaret’s Church for a short memorial service.

Mrs Cox’s family and friends have set up a fundraising page for charities in her memory.

Donations to will be split to causes “closest to her heart”: The Royal Voluntary Service, HOPE not hate, and The White Helmets.
