Arsenal players and Islington schoolchildren show racism the red card

School children, ex-Arsenal players including Sol Campbell, campaigner Dooreen Lawrence and Emmerdale actress Charlie Hardwick gave racism the red card at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

Young people from Drayton Park in Highbury, Robert Blair in Holloway and Hugh Myddelton Primary in Finsbury took part in anti-racism workshops and enjoyed a tour of the grounds.

The visit was part of the football club’s Show Racism the Red Card campaign which has been running for the past two years in partnership with Cambridge Education and Islington Council.
