Wear Red Day - 20th October 2017
PFA Assistant Director of Education Oshor Williams joined Liverpool Mayor Steve Rotheram together with Liverpool Council Leaders and a host of other guests at a launch event in support of Show Racism the Red Card’s Wear Red Day.
This year the 3rd annual Wear Red Day takes place in England and Wales on the 20th October 2017 and in Scotland on the 6th October 2017.
Wear Red Day 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, Show Racism the Red Card can educate one child for a whole day.
There are many ways in which you can get involved with Wear Red Day this October:
At Work: You and your fellow colleagues can get involved by coming to work sporting something Red for the day. It can be as subtle as wearing a Red tie or even Red socks!
At School: Pupils, teachers and support staff can join together in holding a non-uniform day. Schools could also run a sponsored penalty shootout competition or other activities to raise further funds.
On My Own: Individuals can also get involved. You can just wear Red wherever you are and donate £1. Or you could go further and organise an event on the day such as a bake sale, coffee morning or get sponsored to do a challenge!
