We are pleased to announce that the HSBC Golf Roots Programme will be returning to Derby County Community Trust. The sessions will be held at Bemrose Sports Hall on Wednesday evenings. They are free of cost and open to all 11-16 year olds. HSBC and Morley Hayes Golf Club will link up with DCCT to deliver the programme, which will include trips to Morley Hayes. Along with learning the great game of golf, participants will have the opportunity to win various Derby County prizes.

The HSBC Golf Roots Programme was introduced in 2003 to bring the game of golf to areas where it previously was not an option. Golf Roots aim is to not only build playing skills but personal skills, as well. Over the past 11 years the programme has grown into the largest junior golf development project in the UK.

Ryan Shotton and Zak Whitbread Speak at "Show Racism the Red Card" Event

Derby County Community Trust and Derby County Football Club were delighted to host “Show Racism the Red Card” on Tuesday 18th November at the iPro Stadium. The educational workshop, held in the Dave Mackay suite, was used to teach local school children about the issue of racism and what they can do to tackle the problem. Derby County first team members Ryan Shotton and Zak Whitbread along with PFA Equalities Education Executive, Jason Lee, were on hand to partake in a question and answer session with the kids.

Shaping up the day were three different workshops throughout the stadium. Yvonne Luce from Global Education Derby presented the first, which took place in the players’ lounge, then Show Racism the Red Card’s session presented by James Kingett in the Dave Mackay suite, and ending with a tour of the ground. The participating schools were Heathfields Primary, Barrow Hill Primary, St. Thomas Catholic Primary, Swanwick Junior, and Bradley Primary. At the conclusion of the workshops and after a short lunch break, the participants were given the chance to ask questions to the DCFC players in a press conference style format. The best questions and efforts were awarded with prize DCFC tickets at the end of the day.

“Show Racism the Red Card” is the UK’s leading anti-racism charity. Last year they held 38 events, attended by 79 professional footballers and managers educating 3,230 young people. This season they are aiming to hold 50 events with professional football clubs. DCCT would like to thank “Show Racism the Red Card” and all the participating schools for coming out to the iPro Stadium and applaud Derbyshire City Council for sponsoring the event.

Derby County Football Club to Host "Show Racism the Red Card" Education Event

On Tuesday 18th November, from 09:30 to 14:30, Derby County Football Club will host a Show Racism the Red Card educational event, organised with Derby County Community Trust, for local schools. The event has been kindly sponsored by Derbyshire County Council.

Pupils from local schools will take part in workshops delivered by the anti-racism campaign at the iPro Stadium. There will also be additional workshops presented by Global Education Derby and a tour of the stadium. Following the event, SRtRC are asking the young people to create a newspaper style report about the day.

Derby County Football Club players will take part in a question and answer session with the young people after a screening of the SRtRC film.

Ged Grebby, Chief Executive of SRtRC said, “The educational events with football clubs are one of the highlights of our work. It’s brilliant to be able to continue this season’s programme of events with Derby County FC.”

“We’re very grateful to both Derby County in the Community and Derbyshire County Council that they are working in partnership with us. The support from the club and the council ensures this work can take place.”

“SRtRC are aiming to work with 50 football clubs during the 2014-15 season on events like this, in England alone.”

The educational events at football clubs allow young people to experience a first hand interaction with anti-racism role models in the form of professional footballers and spend time thinking critically about this important issue.

During the 2013-14 season the campaign held 38 events in England, attended by 79 professional footballers and managers and educating 3,230 young people.

Derby County Community Trust and Network Rail - Poetry & Poster Competition

 

Derby County Community Trust, supported by Network Rail, is running a poetry and poster competition promoting rail safety.

The importance of railway safety cannot be understated, with an increasing amount of Derbyshire’s railways being electrified for faster and greener journeys. Life threatening hazards surround our railways, such as electrified cables, level crossings and high speed trains.

We are inviting children and young people from 5-18 to enter our poetry and poster competition. Poems and posters should explain the dangers of Derby’s railways, highlighting the dangers to other young people. Entries should be submitted by 1st December.

Winners will be selected in two categories, 5-11 years (Primary) and 11-18 years (Secondary) and will be invited to attend a Derby County home fixture in December.

More information can be found on the Network Rail safety website at http://www.networkrail.co.uk/Safety.aspx?cd=1.

Premier League Kicks Cup 2014

On Saturday 11 October, over 600 young people from 47 professional football clubs, descended on Hackney Marshes, in East London, to take part in the 2014 Premier League Kicks Cup.  It was the first time the finals had enabled every club running a Kicks programme to participate and teams from Plymouth Argyle in the south west to Newcastle United in the North East, from Swansea City in the west to Norwich City in the east were in East London. It was a local team, from West Ham United Community Trust, though who lifted the new trophy in the Under-16s’ category, while in the Under-18 girls Millwall, from across the River Thames, emerged triumphant.

Our very own representatives had a marvellous day in the capital and after a valiant effort we were unfortunately eliminated at the group stages.  Head of Inclusion, Lyndon Roberts said, “The whole day was a great success and ran, in my opinion, fantastically well. All the young people we took along on the day enjoyed every minute of it from the fiercely competitive games, the workshop ran by Paul Hannaford, to the food we received for lunch. Every single one of them took some great knowledge around gangs, drugs and violence away from the day” whilst Kieran (participant) added, “It was a long day with an early start but it was completely worth it. The whole day was brilliant and a fantastic experience for me and the other lads, also getting to see the ‘home of Sunday morning football.’”

 Premier League Kicks originated from the Kickz programme, a partnership between the Premier League and the Metropolitan Police that started in 2006 to use the power of football to build safer, stronger communities. In the past year, the programme which is funded by the Premier League and Sport England, engaged 40,854 young people, who attended in total more than 600,000 times. Of the 780 venues used for Kicks, more than 25% were located in the top 10% most deprived areas in the country and 73% were in the top 30% most deprived areas.
