Wear RED Day takes place on Friday 21st October 2016.
Racism affects everyone and each penny we receive from Wear Red Day will make a real difference to a young person’s life.
The funds raised during Wear Red Day will help ‘Show Racism the Red Card’ (SRtRC) to continue to support and educate young people and teachers throughout the UK.
On Friday SRtRC is asking people to wear red and donate £1 to the campaign.

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. Across Britain, Show Racism the Red Card delivers training to more than 50,000 individuals per year.
