Scottish FA/Show Racism the Red Card

Show Racism the red card 2

The Scottish FA/Broughton Performance football players are tasked with delivering a charitable event each year and making a donation to the charity selected.

This year the squad decided to donate to Show Racism the Red Card, a charity which visits various schools, clubs, centres throughout Scotland and raises awareness of racism on and off the football pitch.

The boys  organised a Penalty Kick Competition with a donation to enter.   They invited S5 pupil and Hibs Goalkeeper Jay Cantley to go in goals for the penalty kick competition.

All the families supported the event and they raised a good amount to donate to the charity. 

On 27 June, ex-Hibs Legend and Show Racism the Red Card coach Mickey Weir delivered a workshop in the classroom and a session on the pitch.

The players really enjoyed both and found the workshop very interesting, with Mickey getting all players to interact with good group activities and discussions.

S4 Pupil Josh Currie presented the cheque for £185 to Mickey on behalf of all his teammates.
