A group of youngsters who took part in an anti-racism workshop at the Club last week were guests at Saturday’s game against Walsall to further spread the word about the fight against discrimination.

Year 7 and 8 pupils from a variety of schools across the town joined us at The Dunes Hotel Stadium last Thursday for a unique workshop specially devised and delivered by Anti-Racist Cumbria.

The Club, the All Bluebirds committee, the Bluebirds Trust and the Community Trust have all worked together with Anti-Racist Cumbria as part of the drive, which has the backing of Fans for Diversity.

The schoolchildren were able to discuss racism within their groups, overseen by trained facilitators, to deepen their knowledge about discrimination and encourage them to continue to talk about it with their friends, families, communities and schools.

The workshop is part of a wider ‘All Bluebirds, All Welcome’ campaign and we were delighted to welcome the youngsters, along with the facilitators and staff from Anti-Racist Cumbria to Saturday’s fixture against The Saddlers.

At half time they were announced onto the pitch at The Dunes Hotel Stadium and had photos taken in front of a new banner designed to cement the Club’s commitment to stamping out discrimination in all its forms.
