On February 9th the Newcastle Eagles showed their support for SRtRC
At Show Racism the Red Card we are lucky enought to enjoy the support of role-models not just from football, but from other sports and walks of life too.
The Newcastle Eagles are one of the most successful professional basketball teams in the UK and have supported the SRtRC campaign for over 10 years. Each season, the Eagles dedicate one of their home games to the SRtRC campaign, allowing resources to be distributed to fans including copies of the SRtRC / Newcastle Eagles poster.
Here is a report from Northumberland Youth Service Team and SRtRC Management Committee member, Derek Gardner about the latest event, held on February 9th:
