Children from Broomhill First School recently enjoyed a visit from members of the charity, Show Racism the Red Card.

As well as taking part in a thought-provoking workshop exploring the causes and consequences of racism, they also had the opportunity to join in a fitness fun session led by former professional football player and current Radio Newcastle commentator, John Anderson.

Show Racism the Red Card is the UK’s anti-racism educational charity and was established in January 1996.

The organisation utilises the high-profile status of football and football players to help tackle racism in society. The majority of the campaign’s output is the delivery of education to young people and adults in their schools, their workplaces and at events held in football stadiums. Visit http://www.srtrc.org/
