Our Welsh Campaign held their 2nd ever event in Anglesey with Bangor City FC sponsored by the FAW.
This is the second event we have held at the school and with the club which was another successful occasion this season and we hope to continue our work with the club and in the area.
Jason Webber - Campaign Worker
Around 170 pupils attended the event at Ysgol David Hughes High School.
Pupils 30 from year 8 took part in anti racism activities delivered by Education Co-ordinator Simon Richards and Education worker Christian Roberts and football coaching from Campaign Worker Jason Webber
The main event saw more activities delivered by Simon and Christian to 140 year 7 pupils who watched the SRtRC DVD and heard stories from a ex FIFA referee who once sent a player off in USA for being racist which was one of the first instances this occurred.
Pupils for the best interaction in the activities received a Bangor FC scarf and hat and a SRtRC goodie bag.
The event was a big success with excellent feedback from the school head teacher who is looking forward to the event again next season.
SRtRC will continue to work with the club over the coming seasons and will host another event at the school next season.
We would like to thank the club for their support and the school for hosting the event again this season.
