Cardiff City’s Community Foundation Delivered a Respect and Racism project in Gilfach Goch Community Association R.C.T
It is great that Cardiff City continue to deliver the anti racism message within their projects and we hope more and more clubs will follow their lead in the near future.

Cardiff City FC Community coaches Gary Wilmot, Mandy Lock and Daniel Smith - aided by Jack Locke_ (Year 10 Treorchy Comprehensive work experience pupil) recently delivered a respect and racism workshop in Gilfach Goch. The workshop was attended by twelve local lads with the aim of reducing anti-social behaviour in the village, with workshop one’s message delivered by Trevor Brooking and Howard Webb.
During the second week, children were shown the ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ DVD, with messages this time coming from Ryan Giggs and Samuel Eto’o.
Gary Wilmot said of the project: “The children really enjoyed engaging with professionals in their approach to the workshops, particularly taking part in the poster competition which was related to what they had learned. The boys also had two hours football coaching which they thoroughly enjoyed. As a foundation, we were delighted with the pupils’ enthusiasm and the results of the project.”
Gilfach Youth worker Scott Priday and the boys involved in the project were special guests at Cardiff’s game against Watford.
Cardiff City continue to lead the way in tackling racism in the community and supporting SRtRC.
