Show Racism the Red Card headed to the North West to host an event at Fleetwood Town's Highbury Stadium.
"It is great to get support from Fleetwood Town who are flying high in League 2. Clubs like Fleetwood Town can use their influence and role model status to engage young people in talking about racism."
Ged Grebby, Chief Executive, Show Racism the Red Card
The educational session was attended by young people from Flakefleet School, Shakespeare Primary and Chaucer Community Primary School, and throughout the day the pupils engaged in number of activities centred around highlighting the dangers of racism.
Young people were taken through an interactive task and asked to highlight some of the challenges of making assumptions based on minimal information.
Campaign staff from Show Racism the Red Card shared a definition of racism with the young people and encouraged them to report racism to responsible adults.
Along with the pupils, the event was attended by Fleetwood Town duo Jeff Hughes and Jamille Antonio Matt as well as former Wales international and one-time Fleetwood player Rob Edwards.
The children were given the opportunity to ask questions of the panel of players and prizes were awarded to the best questions on the issue of racism, both within football and wider society.
Chief Executive of Show Racism the Red Card, Ged Grebby said: "It is great to get support from Fleetwood Town who are flying high in League 2. Clubs like Fleetwood Town can use their influence and role model status to engage young people in talking about racism."
After the event, the Fleetwood number 10, Jamille Matt tweeted: "Great event with @SRTRC_England raising awareness...thoroughly enjoyed it an some great questions from the kids #greatInitiative".
One of the participating schools also took to the social networking site and said: "@FTFCCommunity @SRTRC_England @JamilleAntonio Excellent workshop spent learning about #SRTRC Our after school footballers asked great q's!"

Show Racism the Red Card would like to thank Fleetwood Town FC for holding the event and supporting the Show Racism the Red Card campaign. A big thank you also goes to the panel for taking the time to come along and contribute to the success of the event.
