Marking ‘Wear Red Day’ as part of Show Racism The Red Card

Friday 21st October 2022

This year at QMUL, we will be marking Wear Red Day by flying red flags at the Queens’ Building and the Garrod Building. In addition to this, badges to support ‘Wear Red Day’ will be available to collect at Dept W, the Queens’ Building and the Garrod Building. Why not grab one of these or catch a photo of the flag flying at QMUL! Keep an eye out for where they will be!

Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) is the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity. To this day SRtRC continues to utilise the high-profile status of football and football players to help tackle racism in society and has also expanded into other sports. The majority of the campaign’s work involves the delivery of educational workshops to young people and adults in schools, workplaces and at events held in football stadiums. Across the UK, SRtRC provides educational sessions to more than 50,000 individuals per year.  In addition to the direct education of young people and adults, SRtRC produces educational resources, to challenge misconceptions, stereotypes and negative attitudes in society.

NHS Blood Donors

Thursday 27th October 2022

Queen Mary Students’ Union will be running a stall/drop in session with the NHS to discuss the important of black donors. Information will be provided and this is a great opportunity to get booked in to donate blood. This is part of supporting a national campaign to increase Black blood donors. This is an urgent priority for NHS Blood and Transplant.

  • Did you know? Black donors are ten times more likely to have the Ro and B positive blood types urgently needed to treat the 15,000 people in the UK suffering from sickle cell disease. Sickle cell is a painful and debilitating condition which is particularly prevalent in people with an African or Caribbean background.

This will take place at Library Square, Mile End Campus, from 10am-3pm
