Speaking at the event, Jason Webber said:
“Cardiff City has been leading the way - not just in Wales, but in the UK as a whole.
"The Club has been working with Show Racism the Red Card to highlight our key message - that there is no place for racism in football, nor society at large.
"Our sixth successive event with the club was another fantastic occasion with 150 young people leaving with smiles on their faces after hearing some important messages from their heroes Tommy and Nicky. SRtRC would like to thank Cardiff City for their continued support towards an issue that is still prevalent in society.”
