On 20th November 2023, Red Card delivered a gambling awareness workshop to Higham Lane School in Nuneaton.
The workshop supported 2021 legislation to educate students on gambling harms in all secondary schools in the UK.
Following the session, we were delighted to receive this testimonial:
Thank you for providing us with such a fantastic workshop on Tuesday.
It was great to have Red Card Gambling in to deliver a workshop to our Year 11 students during a personal Development drop down day.
The workshop was excellent!
Well planned, appropriate and relative to the students & included great examples from sport and beyond.
Although addiction is covered in our CPSHE curriculum, we have never done anything around gambling before and it was such a thought-provoking piece of work, aimed at one of the fastest growing addictions in the country for both men and interestingly women. The role that media and sponsorship plays in this is also immense, putting our students at risk without even knowing it!
The workshop was well received by our staff, students and support staff.
Hopeful that we will see you again next year!
