Young Academy players show support for Rainbow Initiative

30 April 2020

Some of Norwich City Academy's younger players have gotten creative in lockdown, as they show support of the Rainbow Initiative.

The Rainbow Initiative is a movement for the younger generation to show their appreciation for those working around us in these unprecedented times, by displaying a piece of rainbow-themed artwork in their window with a message of thanks. 

Some of our Academy's younger players have got creatively involved, as can be seen in the gallery above.

Providing a bit more insight into the initiative, FP and YDP Player Care Manager Carys Dalton said:

"Children all over the UK have been displaying colourful drawings and paintings of rainbows in their windows to show their appreciation for key workers. A lot of our academy players have got relations and loved ones who are working at the forefront in the NHS, Police Force, Care Sector and many other key roles, working tirelessly during this pandemic.

"Everyone has been impacted differently by the situation, and as a community we have come together to show our appreciation for the hard work of these individuals. Norwich City players, from the First Team, all the way down to our Academy U9s, have done their bit to show gratitude and be thankful during the past few weeks.

"We have collected photographs from some of our Young Academy Players of the wonderful Rainbow’s they’ve been creating and displaying in their front windows. From us to you, thank you so much key workers."

This project wouldn't be possible without the artists, so it's a big thanks to those involved: Archie, Basti, Ben, D'ondre, Ellis, Filip, Finn, Henlee, Henry, Jack, Jedd, Kruz, Lynden, Oliver, Ollie, Patryk, Reuben, Riley, Sam, Theo, William and Zachary.

Great work, boys! It all looks wonderful, well done to all of you for getting so creative in this time!
