Staff wear red to support anti-racism campaign

24 Oct 2017

On Friday, 20 October 'Show Racism the Red Card' (SRtRC) held its annual Wear Red Day

Wear Red Day

Staff got involved by coming to work sporting something red for the day and by donating £1.  Equality, Diversity & Inclusion, Pensions and Finance were among those who supported the campaign and a group photo was taken and shared on social media.  

Wear Red Day (WRD) is a national day of action which encourages schools, businesses & individuals to wear red and donate £1 to help facilitate the delivery of anti-racism education for young people & adults throughout England, Scotland & Wales.

For just £5, SRtRC can educate one child for a whole day.  Every penny raised during WRD enables the campaign to work with more young people and adults across the UK to challenge racism in society.

Any outstanding donations can be forwarded to Veronique Rizzuto from Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, G29 John Owens Building or via JustGiving.
