Young people from 5 local schools attended an event at the home of the Canaries to learn about anti-racism from football role models
Show Racism the Red Card received a very warm welcome from Norwich City Football Club, who hosted the event for local school children. Former professional footballer and manager Leroy Rosenior led an interactive anti-racist workshop and introduced the Show Racism the Red Card DVD which was screened for the young people.
The young people asked some challenging questions to the panel who gave excellent answers – speaking about their experiences of racism and offering advice on how to deal with, and combat, racism whenever it occurs.
The young people asking the three top questions were given prizes donated by the club, including a pennant signed by the whole team.
Ged Grebby, SRtRC Chief Executive said:
“SRtRC have been working in partnership with Norwich City’s Study Support Centre and NCFC to organise the event. We are confident that the anti-racist message presented on the day will further illustrate the club’s commitment to tackling racism through education and will help show young people from the area that there is no room for racism in Norwich: in football or in society.”
Show Racism the Red Card would like to thank the club and Norwich’s Study Support Centre for their help in organising the event and we look forward to returning to Carrow Road Stadium in future!
