Show Racism the Red Card are delighted to announce that Danny Batth, Club Captain at Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club, has agreed to become a patron of the anti-racism educational charity. Batth has made over 200 appearances for Wolves and in the 2017/18 season, Batth led his side to Premier League promotion by winning the EFL Championship.
Show Racism the Red Card Chief Executive, Ged Grebby, said;
"It is fantastic to have Danny on board as a patron, as a professional footballer the impact he can have on young people is incredible. As an organisation we utilise the power of professional footballers as role models to help educate young people and we hope to work with Danny next season to do this."
"We know that Danny is already involved in the delivery of some fantastic work which he is conducting through his foundation. We look forward to working with both himself, and the foundation, in the future."
Wolverhampton Wanderers FC Club Captain, Danny Batth, said;
"I'm more than happy to come on board, the work of Show Racism the Red Card has a lot of correlations with my foundation and it would be brilliant if we could work together going forward."
Danny's foundation supports two charities, 'Football for Peace' is the first one which is based in the Wolverhampton/Birmingham area and it aims to break down barriers of race & religion in the inner city for deprived young people taking part in programme. The second charity which is supported by the foundation is 'Yuwa', a school based in rural Jarkandhar. The school is in an area where literacy rates are as low as 30% in females with many not even attending school as its deemed pointless. The school offers a top class education, using football to promote confidence & leadership skills in the girls.
