Show Racism The Red Card Open Essex Office

Wed 29th Jan 2014 | Football Governance

Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC), an anti-racism educational charity supported by a host of current and ex-players from professional football, have announced the opening of a brand new office based in Southend-on-Sea.

Ex-full time footballers Anwar Uddin, Luther Blissett, Paul Mortimer, Clint Easton and Steven Kabba, plus current player Osei Sankofa, will be working with the campaign to deliver a programme of anti-racism education alongside fun football fitness sessions to young people in schools throughout Southern England.

They work with football clubs as well as schools, and have received great support from local teams such as Southend United, Dagenham & Redbridge and Leyton Orient, as well as others further afield in the Premier League. As a charity, SRtRC rely heavily on grants and sponsorship to support their endeavours.

Ged Grebby, Chief Executive of SRtRC, stated: “This office will act as a southern base for our campaign, delivering this vital work to young people in schools, colleges and the workplace.

“Our Education Team are great role models for young people and their support is really powerful in increasing their enthusiasm and engagement with the issue.”

Steve Goodsell, the SRtRC’s Regional Manager who will be leading the new office, said: “The work that Show Racism the Red Card delivers in schools has not only a profound effect upon the young people it is aimed at, but also on the teachers, educators and youth workers who look after them.

“I am very proud that we are able to bring this work to young people in Essex, as well as building on our existing programme in London and the Home Counties.”
