“I’m delighted to be working with our partners to invite the communities of Milton Keynes to the Great Get Together Iftar. It is such a privilege to be able to share the beauty of Ramadan with the wider community. The essence of the Great Get Together Iftar remains ‘we are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us’ as our collective experience of Lockdown demonstrates.”
