60 first year pupils from Morgan Academy attended a Show Racism the Red Card educational event hosted by Dundee United FC on Wednesday 13th November.
"Once again we are pleased to host this important event and although we are proud of our excellent record in this city we cannot be complacent about challenging racism. We have no place at Tannadice for bigots”
Stephen Thompson DUFC Chairman
60 first year pupils from Morgan Academy attended a Show Racism the Red Card educational event hosted by Dundee United FC on Wednesday 13th November. The club and the ArabTrust worked alongside Show Racism the Red Card to offer the event which demonstrates that racism is something that neither the club or the fan base will accept.
The pupils spent the day participating in educational workshops promoting anti-racism, anti-sectarianism and overall messages of equality and respect. They also had the opportunity to participate in a question and answer session on racism with the clubs current players, captain Sean Dillon and Ryan Dow and key other guests as well as Cllr Georgia Cruikshank. Pupils were joined in the workshops by Robbie Winters and Derek Ferguson who now promote the campaign throughout Scotland and Andy Burns (Club Chaplain), Nick Marra (Former Head teacher and Eric Ballie (Former Head teacher).
Vicki Burns, Campaign Manager with Show Racism the Red Card said “ Dundee United have been great supporters of the campaign over the years. The young people we speak to in Dundee are very passionate about their support for an anti-racism message. We hope by taking part in Wednesday’s event they are inspired to back their schools and communities and keep promoting it.”
