Striker and #NCAFC’s Show Racism the Red Card ambassador Jamille Matt enjoyed a community event supporting SRtRC's month of action this afternoon at Rodney Parade, educating pupils at St Joseph's Primary school in Newport.
Who are Show Racism The Red Card?
Show Racism The Red Card is an anti-racism educational charity.
They aim to combat racism through enabling role models, who are predominately but not exclusively footballers, to present an anti-racist message to young people and others.
To this day SRtRC continues to utilise the high-profile status of football and football players to help tackle racism in society and has also expanded into other sports.
The majority of the campaign’s work involves the delivery of educational workshops to young people and adults in schools, workplaces and at events held in football stadiums. Across the UK, SRtRC provides educational sessions to more than 50,000 individuals per year.
This afternoon was a perfect example of SRtRC's work, with local Newport primary school St Michael's Primary taking part in a day-long workshop at County's home ground Rodney Parade.
After watching an informative video, Jamille took part in a fake press conference where lots of the pupils (or fake journalists, if you'd rather!) asked questions of Jamille all kinds of questions.
Shortly after the event, Jamille tweeted:
Keep an eye out at this weekend's Scunthorpe United match at Rodney Parade, where all NCAFC players will be showcasing SRtRC t-shirts in the pre-match warm-up.
