Black Cats stars backing racism fight (UK)

A string of Sunderland stars are supporting a bid to boost the Show Racism The Red Card charity.
Striker Darren Bent, goalkeeper Simon Mignolet and young midfield star Jordan Henderson have all signed up to back its drive to be named the Football Association's charity of the year.

Defenders Titus Bramble, Anton Ferdinand and Michael Turner were also on hand at the Academy of Light training ground, in Cleadon, to throw their weight behind the campaign.

The honour would see the North East organisation benefit from the publicity associated with its affiliation to the FA, while it would also get a share of fund-raising activities carried out by the governing body, including proceeds from the annual Community Shield matches.

Craig Bankhead, North East education manager with the charity, said: "The support from both the players and the club has been amazing.

"They were happy to get involved, give their backing, and sign the card. It was a great effort."

Launched in 1996, Show Racism The Red Card holds events with football clubs across the country, runs competitions for schools to enter and produces DVDs, where players and youngsters speak about their experiences of and views on racism.

Craig added: "The campaign is going very well. We've had support from fans of all clubs, and hopefully we stand a good chance of winning FA charity of the year status, which will make a massive difference to the group."

Earlier this year, Black Cats chairman Niall Quinn pledged his support to the charity of the year bid.

He said at the time: "The education that Show Racism The Red Card provides to children is valuable not only within sport, but within any walk of life, as we aim to put a stop to anti-social and discriminatory behaviour.

"As the charity strives forward, I am delighted to continue my support in its 15th year, building on its many successes."
