The Directors and members of Durham County Football
Association would like to extend sincere congratulations to current Ambassador
and integral member of our County FA Inclusion Advisory Group, Gary Bennett as
he has today received his MBE from King Charles III after his visit to Windsor
Gary has been awarded the MBE for all his hard work and
service regarding Anti-discrimination and especially towards the eradication of
racism within the game through his role within the Show Racism the Red Card
Gary regularly visits Schools, Universities
and workplaces educating people about race and discrimination.
Through his work,
reporting issues surrounding anti-discrimination has become easier and he is a
firm believer of raising awareness and education.
It is hoped
eventually that due to the work of Gary and other like-minded people football
will become FOR ALL
