The Show Racism the Red Card team were given the opportunity to take our Lighthouse Project to Lennoxtown – the home of Celtic FC’s training facilities.
As part of our work focusing on Refugees, Stereotypes and Prejudices, the team engaged in a day’s workshop with Celtic FC’s Reserves and Academy players and coaches. This was only the second football club we have visited as part of the Lighthouse project and, as it has received tremendous feedback from schools and community groups across Scotland, we were thrilled to introduce our recent work to Celtic FC.
The playing staff and coaches at Celtic found the workshop “extremely engaging and interesting for all”, with one coach adding:
“It was great to raise awareness of the pre-conceived bias we all as a society have. The workshop seems to have had an impact on the players and I think this stems from the interaction between the players during the session.”
Thank you to Celtic Football Club for having us.
