Bordesley Village Primary School visit St. Andrew's

We believe it’s vitally important to show the children how much Birmingham City Football Club cares and is willing to support the local community.

The visit was part of Birmingham City FC’s continuing efforts to engage with the local community with St. Chad’s Primary also present in the afternoon.

The children were given the chance to learn about their local Club and were taken on a stadium tour before returning to the Legends’ Lounge where they took part in a colouring competition.

They then heard from Kick it Out’s Rishi Jain, who spoke to them about equality and diversity in football and the work of Kick it Out.

Rishi said: “With the club achieving the intermediate Kick it Out equality standard last year, this event comes on the back of a great relationship that we have with the football club.

“Schools and the children are part of the local community, so it’s great for them to visit their local football club and see what it is all about.

“This is an ongoing programme of a commitment to equality and diversity and it’s only going to grow and because of such good commitment from the staff, players and the manager across the board.”

David Boston, Blues’ Customer Services Manager said: “We were delighted to welcome the children to St. Andrew’s for a fantastic day.

"We believe it’s vitally important to show the children how much Birmingham City Football Club cares and is willing to support the local community.

“I’d like to thank Rishi for his attendance as the Club continues to show its commitment to equality and diversity."
