April has kept the Scotland team very busy with not just one but two educational club events, as well as working with hundreds of young people across the country.
In May, Show Racism the Red Card Scotland delivered in:
7 primary schools
2 football clubs
Working with 392 young people
This month, we with a kind donation by AKD Electrical, we were able to get our message out to more than 400,000 viewers nationwide, as well as a capacity Easter Road Stadium.
In addition, we surprised two young entrants to this year’s Creative Competition in very different ways.
We were invited along to the STUC Congress in Dundee, where we were able to meet many of our invaluable trade union and political supporters. Knowing that we would be meeting the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, we wanted to show off this year’s Creative Competition. Who better to do that, than local winner Erin Harvey from Sidlaw View Primary, Dundee.
Erin was invited along to the STUC Congress by us and was stunned when she was congratulated by none other than Nicola Sturgeon herself.
Also this month, we surprised one young entrant who was unable to make it to this year’s Awards Ceremony at Hampden. We arrived at Brian Uzomo’s school, Dunard Primary and revealed the news he was a winner, presenting him with his brand new Scotland shirt along with Patrick Grady MP.
We then held our first Red Card display during the highly competitive Scottish Students’ Women’s Cup Final, and Queen’s Park Shield. Both took place at Spartan FC’s Ainslie Park.
