Sheffield Wednesday stars are helping to kick bullies into touch by backing this year’s national Anti-Bullying Week campaign, which runs from the 19 to 23 November.
The team are giving their support to the Anti-Bullying Alliance’s week of action which this year is themed ‘We're better without bullying’ and looks at the affect bullying has on achievement.
Owls captain Martin Taylor said: “Everyone at Sheffield Wednesday is 100 per cent behind Anti-Bullying Week.
“We don’t want any of our young fans to be suffering in silence, so if you are getting bullied or you know someone who is then please tell your family, teachers or even a best friend so they can help you put a stop to it.”
The club has been working hard to tackle bullying in the city, with coaches from the SWFC Community Programme visiting local schools and running sessions with pupils on respect and how to deal with bullies.
