Dagenham and Redbridge continue fight against racism
Dagenham and Redbridge have designated tomorrow’s npower League One fixture with MK Dons their annual Daggers against Racism Family Fun Day.
Directors from the two clubs will be joined by the mayors of both Barking and Dagenham and Milton Keynes, while numerous activities will be available for the family, including face painting, petitions, free health checks from the Primary Care Trust (PCT) and a roadshow from league sponsors npower.
In conjunction with Kick It Out, Show Racism the Red Card and the Football League, both clubs have agreed that the game should not be segregated; giving all fans the chance to mix and show their support for the cause.
Last year’s event proved to be a huge success, attracting a crowd of more than double the average attendance number and being featured on the BBC’s Football League show.
Looking for a similar response this time around as they bid for survival in League One, the Daggers have slashed ticket prices significantly.
Terrace prices are just 25p for juniors and concessions and 99p for adults. Seating costs £4.99 for juniors and concessions and £9.99 for Adults.
Daggers managing director Steve Thompson said: “Over the years the club has tried to reach out to all members of our community from whatever background and of all ages. We are renowned as a family, friendly club and days like these help to reinforce that position.”
