Show Racism the Red Card welcomes Richard Offiong to join our staff team. Craig Bankhead, Community Education Manager for Show Racism the Red Card said:
"I'm really happy to welcome Richard as part of the North East Education Team. Richard is very engaging when working in schools and his experiences on and off the football field will help the team educate young people in the region about the dangers of racism."
Speaking to the Shields Gazette, Richard shares why he wanted to be part of our campaign:
“It is something I believe very strongly in, and something I am passionate about, so it’s been fantastic to get out there and talk to young people about it.
“Hopefully, if we can get the message through at an early age that racism isn’t OK then that will stick with them as they grow older. They will then pass the same message on to their kids.”
