Show Racism the Red Card were delighted to be invited to the Stand Up to Sectarianism / No Knives Better Lives day recently held by Ayrshire Communities Education and Sport and Scotland’s Police.
“It was fantastic to be invited to attend today’s event. At Show Racism the Red Card we have a close working relationship with the people and organisations of North Ayrshire. They are totally on board with our message that like racism, sectarianism has no place in modern Scottish society. We look forward to working with them again in the future.”
Vicki Burns, Campaign Manager
The event was extremely well attended by the local community and the joint messages of not getting involved in sectarianism or knife crime was well received. There was a lot to do on the day including a Street Soccer Obstacle Course, football skills, face painting, tombola stalls, fairground rides and inflatable challenges. Paul Brannigan, star of “The Angel’s Share” and “River City” was also present to give an inspiring talk to the young people about the dangers of sectarianism and knife culture and the importance of following their dreams.
