The fundraising page set up in honour of MP Jo Cox who died after being stabbed and shot in the street has reached £750,000.

The husband and family of Ms Cox set up the gofundme page called Jo Cox's Fund to raise money for three charities "closest to her heart"; The Royal Voluntary Service, HOPE not hate, and The White Helmets "in celebration and memory" of the Labour MP.

In a message posted on the site when the total reached £700,000 Brendan Cox, Jo Cox's husband said he had been "blown away" by the "incredible support" received in raising the money.

Jo believed in a better world and she fought for it every day of her life with an energy, and a zest for life that would exhaust most people. She would have wanted two things above all else to happen now, one that our precious children are bathed in love and two, that we all unite to fight against the hatred that killed her.


Launched on Friday, Jo Cox's Fund reached its £750,000 target in just two days.

The total continues to rise.
