Draw Together Challenge inspiring children to be allies

CBeebies' Ben Cajee delighted by thousands of artworks from primary schools pledging support to those who face discrimination

10 October 2021

Thousands of primary school children across England and Wales have been expressing their support for those who face discrimination through the Premier League's Draw Together Challenge. The challenge was set this year by CBeebies presenter Ben Cajee. The TV star was overwhelmed by the quality of almost 2,000 drawings that have been submitted by the children.

"We have had some amazing entries," Cajee said as he reviewed some of the drawings submitted. "I love how bright and colourful they all are and the pledges are brilliant."

Children from across England and Wales were encouraged to draw or paint a picture on the theme of allyship. They were asked to detail the positive action they would take to help challenge discriminatory behaviour, wherever they see it. More on the challenge can be seen on the Premier League website here.

"I am really proud to be an ally to others and I am so glad that so many of you are too," Cajee said in a message to the children. "It's so important that we all challenge discrimination wherever we see and we continue to be inclusive in everything we do."
