Youngsters from two Lynn schools have taken part in an anti-racism campaign led by a former professional footballer.

Pupils from the Eastgate and St Edmunds primary schools took part in the Show Racism the Red Card workshop, which was organised in association with Norfolk Police and held at the North Lynn Discovery Centre on Tuesday.

The session was led by Steve Kabba, pictured above front, second right, who played for clubs including Crystal Palace, Sheffield United, Watford, Grimsby Town and Barnet during a 14-year professional career, and Osei Sankofa, front, second left, who currently plays for Conference South side Ebbsfleet United.

PC Natalie Garrard, front left, who helped to organise the session for the police, thanked the centre and the charity for staging the event.

She said: “It was clear to see that everyone who attended got a lot of out the day.”
