Show Racism the Red Card application success

Decisions have been made by a judging panel today on applications for this seasons Fortnight of Action Community grants. show2

The New Saints are pleased to announce that our application has been successful.

The SRtRC team will visit The New Saints on the 11th of December and they will host a workshop at Park Hall stadium.

Following the initial workshop that took place last year, The New Saints Community Foundation team will be using the grant as well as the resources provided to carry out similar Educational workshops across the local area. The money will be used to highlight the issues and provide information regarding racism

Craig Edwards will be working closely with the local community to ensure that racism is shown the red card. The Community Foundation Officer was more than happy with the news and said, ‘It is wonderful news for the club and it will be really great to get out to the local Schools as well as the local community and start delivering workshops. We have to stop Racism once and for all and I feel that this grant is a great way to get out there and start working towards that objective.’

The grant awarded equates to £300 which will be spend on purchasing Educational DVDs as well as T-Shirts that will hopefully further broaden peoples knowledge of racism.
