Over 100 young people, including pupils from St Luke's CE and Eastfield Primary Schools in Wolverhampton, took park in an anti racism workshop, watched a Show Racism the Red Card educational film and enjoyed a question and answer session with a panel of guests including Wolverhampton Wanderers FC players and representatives of the City of Wolverhampton Council.

The event was organised by Show Racism the Red Card, the UK's leading anti racism educational charity which uses the high profile status of football and football players to publicise its message.

Councillor Claire Darke, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Education, said: "Show Racism the Red Card educates 50,000 young people every year, helping to make Britain a safer, more inclusive place to live, and I am delighted that so many local pupils were able to take part in this session and find out more about the issues around racism."

Meanwhile, people are being encouraged to back the campaign and Show Racism the Red Card by wearing red on Wear Red Day 2017 this Friday (20 October). To find out more, please visit Type=links;Linkid=9790;Title=Show Racism the Red Card;Target=_blank;.
