Everycolour supporting England Women’s team
The Everycolour project will be showing its continued support for the England Women’s team ahead of their FIFA Women’s World Cup semi-final against Japan on Thursday (2 July).
The project celebrates equality within football to primary school children and to show their backing towards the Lionessess, Everycolour has run a blog throughout the tournament as well as releasing a song performed by their choir.
The blog, created by primary school children, has been celebrating the World Cup and the achievements of England team as they have progressed through the tournament.
Prior to the World Cup which begun earlier this month, the Everycolour choir released a song titled “Dare To Dream”, with the aim of inspiring young people to show their support for the Lionessess.
The Choir is formed of two primary schools, Broad Oak and Didsbury CE primary schools, which are located in Manchester. They performed “Dare to Dream” at City Square ahead of Manchester City’s Premier League game against QPR on 10 May, and on the pitch for Manchester City Women’s match against Chelsea on 11 May.
The choir recently joined Kick It Out at the ‘Kit ‘em Out’ prize giving event at the National Football Museum in Manchester where they performed “Dare To Dream”.
John Conibear, lead on the project, said: “Everycolour celebrates all that’s good about football, promoting positive values that tackle discrimination.
“Based in Manchester, we launched our summer campaign supporting England Women with our theme song, “Dare To Dream”. Since then, four primary schools have been blogging about the World Cup, tackling discrimination discussing and all things Everycolour.
“We are wishing the England Women all the best for their semi-final against Japan on Thursday. Come on England!”
