Funding Appeal - Journalist Booklets

As you may know, Show Racism the Red Card does a great deal of work in education and training on antiracism, Islamophobia, homophobia and tackling hate crime. Recent events in the UK and in the USA mean we have to redouble our efforts to confront extreme right wing beliefs and activity wherever they surface.

For several years now we have run a popular and successful activity with young people producing their own newspapers about Show Racism the Red Card events in Wales.. We are now looking for funding to bring this activity to our events in England.

To complete the project we need £3000 to publish 20,000 booklets. A donation of £500 would see your union's logo on the whole print run.

Of course, Show Racism the Red Card is grateful for donations of any size and would be pleased to have the active participation of your union in our work.

Ged Grebby, Show Racism the Red Card Chief Executive said;

“After several years of trialling the 'Young Journalist' activity in Wales it is great to see this excellent initiative now being rolled out to our educational events a Football Clubs in England and Scotland.  This activity allows young people to have more preparation before our events, take notes during the sessions and write up their own Newspaper story afterwards.  We look forward to seeing the new Newspaper stories on our website and social media”.

Jason Webber, Show Racism the Red Card Wales Campaign Coordinator said;

“The Young Journalist activity has been a fantastic addition to our club events in Wales and provides a lasting impact of our educational work. The activity enables the young people who attend our events to continue learning about anti-racism and provides a focus for them to research the topic of racism to prepare for the events the role play press conference with the clubs professional players.”

As a donor you would also be invited to all of our educational events that we run at Football Clubs throughout the season. Below are the events we have confirmed so far for the 2017/18 season.
