Trust partner up with Show Racism the Red Card

THROUGHOUT October - also recognised globally as Black History Month - QPR in the Community Trust were delighted to be working alongside Show Racism the Red Card as we delivered a fantastic workshop at local school Ark Priory Academy.

Delivered to over 90 students, with workshops to Year 4, 5 and 6 students, the Trust were also joined by QPR FC Women stars Kasha Petit and Sue Kumaning, as well as Under-23s players Marco Ramkilde, Shiloh Remy and Ben Wells, who were on hand to take part in a valuable Q&A session.

Trust community development officer Pablo Blackwood spoke passionately about the event, telling www.qpr.co.uk: “We were pleased to come down and support Show Racism the Red Card.

“From a Community Trust perspective, we came down to deliver some fantastic workshops, to get the students to really think about what they learned from their curriculum and what was really nice was that the questions they asked at the end really encapsulated the day.

“This event is something which we were really pleased to be a part of.

"We were truly delighted to work with Show Racism the Red Card. The young people looked at how we deal with racism, how to be an ally, and how important it is for schools to follow the example of Ark Primary in embedding Black History into the curriculum."

In addition, R’s U23 star Remy added: “It was a very good and inspirational day, to see how the kids reacted to the workshops was mind-blowing.

“The talks we had with the students were very beneficial as no-one is born racist, therefore it’s great to see the school educating the kids about the impact of racism from a young age.

“This can then provide them with an understanding of racism as they grow up.”
