YOUNGSTERS from Bradford schools helped promote an event taking place in June designed to bring the nation together as one.

The One Britain One Nation campaign, founded by former Bradford police officer Kash Singh, has been holding events to highlight OBON Day, on Friday, June 29.

Schools throughout the district will be helping celebrate the occasion with bunting and Union flags.

Mr Singh said: "We all need to live in a society where everyone has the opportunity to showcase their pride, passion and love for a United Kingdom once more. It is tremendous that we have this opportunity to put Yorkshire on the map for such a worthwhile and much needed reason.”

He added: “OBON wants to utilise the strength of all our people to champion the values that we all have in common to promote a peaceful and respectful coexistence of all our people and communities. This day truly inspires all our children, the future of our country, to love their nation by showcasing and forging a sense of togetherness based on their love, pride and passion for our great country. All schools are being urged to get involved and celebrate the day in the spirit it is intended so that all our children feel proud and valued and know with confidence that they have a role to play in the life of this nation.”
