Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) invited local primary schools to participate in an anti-racism education workshop supported by Sheffield Wednesday.

The workshop, held on 6 October, took place at Sheffield’s Hillsborough stadium, with the aim of introducing young people to critical thinking, world view, stereotypes and how to identify racism.

The SRtRC showed an educational film which features high profile athletes and influential figures sharing their experiences and advice on how to challenge racism.

They also invited football legend, John Beresford MBE, SWFC players Dennis Adeniran, Akin Famewo, Courtney Tingle, Megan Hammond and SWFC Manager Darren Moore to the workshop.

After the workshop, attendees got the chance to look behind the scenes, taking a tour round the home and away changing rooms.

SRtRC is the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity, established in January 1996, thanks in part to a donation by, then, Newcastle United goalkeeper Shaka Hislop.

They aim to utilise the high-profile status of football and football players to help tackle racism in society and have also expanded into other sports. 

They provide educational sessions to more than 50,000 individuals per year in the UK.

SRtRC: “Manager Darren Moore and Ambassador John Beresford MBE were supported to the educational event today at the Hillsborough Stadium, Also, thank you to all the staff at SWFCCP and SWFC for helping make the day possible. ”
