Chesterfield Football Club Community Trust will be joining forces with Show Racism the Red Card at the Proact Stadium to teach young people about the dangers of racism.

The event, which takes place on 8th December, will run from 9.30am to 3pm with pupils from a number of local schools taking part in the day.

There will be a carousel of workshops including an SRtRC workshop, ground tours and a workshop run by Global Education.

Pupils will also see a screening of the SRtRC film and they will also have the chance to pose questions to the panel of players and special guests attending the afternoon part of the event.

Ged Grebby, chief executive of SRtRC, said: “We a very grateful to Chesterfield Football Club for their support of the campaign.

“The team are looking forward to their trip to the Proact Stadium and to be working with the team from Chesterfield FC Community Trust who we know are doing some really important work in the area.

“We are delighted to be able to support Show Racism the Red Card by hosting an event in Chesterfield.

“They do a lot of good work tackling racism around the UK and it’s a pleasure for us to be involved.

“By joining forces with Show Racism the Red Card to deliver a day’s workshop for local Primary School children, we’re hoping it will provide awareness of the effects of racism for the next generation of Spireites and ensure the Proact Stadium remains a great place for everyone to watch football.

During last season, the campaign held 33 events in England, attended by 67 current professional footballers and managers and educating 3,088 young people.
