Show Racism the Red Card hosted our 7th successful Stand Up Against Racism event on the 29th December, 2011.
Our seventh Stand Up Against Racism (SUAR) event was held on Thursday 29th December 2011 at the prestigious venue The Sage, Gateshead. The night was another great success for our SUAR campaign, promoting our cause locally and raising money for our work through generous donations.
Special guests included Emmerdale actor Charlie Hardwick and Show Racism the Red Card Chairman Kevin Miles compering, as well as comedians John Scott, Patrick Monahan and Anvil Springstien performing.
A local production company, The Unlikely Lads, kindly volunteered their time and recorded the comedians’ performances along with interviews with Charlie Hardwick, and guest Sol Campbell, about the work of Show Racism the Red Card – click here to watch the footage!
We also launched our new ‘Business Friends of Show Racism the Red Card’ campaign, which aims to build on and create new links with private sector companies. We hope that the event will have successfully promoted this new section of our campaign and look forward to seeing what opportunities may arise in the coming months.
Show Racism the Red Card would like to thank Charlie, Kevin, John, Patrick, Anvil and the Unlikely Lads for volunteering their time on the night, as well as UNISON, Newcastle United FC and Sunderland AFC for donating prizes for the raffle, and Potts Printers UK for sponsoring the event.
