Anti-Racism Day

By Office of Wera Hobhouse, Oct 28, 2019 11:10

Bath City FC holds a very special place in our community. It’s a real hub that brings people together to watch and celebrate sport. 

Wera was delighted to take part in their Anti-Racism Day this past Saturday. The event brought together Bath Against Racism (BAR), officers from Bath & North East Somerset (B&NES) Council and Fairfield House, the former Bath home of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie during his exile from Ethiopia from 1936 – 1941.

Racism has absolutely no place in our city of Bath, in football and at Bath City Football Club. Wera supports the fantastic efforts of everyone involved to tackle racism. Wera is committed to building an open, inclusive and tolerant Britain. A society that appreciates every single individual and their unique contribution. A place where everyone is welcome. Indeed, Bath is an extremely diverse city with people from all over the world. Wera believes in focusing on the positive values that unite us as people - not what divides us. Together we can -- and we will -- confront racism.

Wera wants to thank Carole Banwell, General Manager of Bath City, William Heath, Chair of Fairfield House Bath CIC, B&NES Council, Clare Crestani of Bath Against Racism and Jerry Gill, Bath City’s Manager and everyone else involved for coming together in such a positive way to demonstrate that our wonderful city says no to racism.
