Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) in partnership with UNISON in the Northern Region have been running a football tournament in Colombia for the past two years. This year we decided to make a public appeal for football shirts to give out during our visit. With the help of a public appeal from ex-Newcastle United players: Shaka Hislop, Steve Howey and Olivier Bernard as well as ex-Sunderland Captain, Gary Bennett, we received a fantastic response. Thanks also to the Newcastle Chronicle for this article: Not sure what to do with your old Newcastle or Sunderland kit? How about this for an idea
The appeal received close to 700 shirts which has meant that that we have currently only been able to deliver half of them to Colombia. We are therefore making an appeal for donations to send the remaining shirts over.

Thanks to all those who donated shirts and in particular to Middlesbrough FC, Sunderland AFC, Newcastle United FC, Whitley Bay FC, Northern Football Alliance League, NUFC.Com and the family of Will Clark.
