Local school children visit Adams park for a day of anti-racism education with Luther Blissett and Paul Mortimer
Wycombe Wanderers invited a number of local schools to Adams Park for a Show Racism the Red Card event, hosted by former Watford and England striker Luther Blissett and ex-Charlton and Aston Villa midfielder Paul Mortimer.
Youngsters from Princes Risborough Primary, Bearbrook and Oakridge School were treated to a guided tour of the stadium before assembling for a series of workshops which described the problems caused by racism and ways in which such issues can be tackled.
Wycombe Wanderers have supported Show Racism the Red Card regularly in recent years as part of their succesful diversity projects, promoting equality across the local community.
Wanderers' diversity officer, Aqeel Akram, said: "The whole country has made great strides in eliminating racism from all walks of life, but it is important that football clubs, councils and societies continue to deliver the message that any form of racism is unacceptable.
"We were privileged to welcome Luther Blissett and Paul Mortimer to the stadium and the kids really took in every word they said."
