In collaboration with the Premier League’s No Room for Racism Campaign, Burnley FC in the Community’s Premier League Primary Stars team invited three local schools to an exciting event at Turf Moor on Thursday.
During this event, the children actively participated in a range of activities, including anti-discrimination workshops, lively Kick it Out sessions, an exciting stadium tour, and a memorable grand finale.
To add more excitement to the day, we were joined by special guests: Burnley FC Women’s Player Mikalaya Wildgoose, Head of Women’s Football Lola Ogunbote, as well as two players from our U18’s, Ryan Tioffo and Rohan Vaughan.
Education Manager, Lianne Bradford told us ‘This event provided a wonderful opportunity for the children to learn, connect, and actively support the No Room for Racism campaign. We are confident that this experience will leave a lasting impression on the children, and it’s something they will cherish and remember for years to come’.
Headteacher of Cherryfold Primary School told us “We would like to say a big thank you to Burnley FC in the Community, both the children and the staff really enjoyed the event yesterday!”.
BFCitC would like to say a huge thank you to all the schools for taking part and to the players for joining us for such a special day.
