Cricketers set to take to the pitch for domestic violence
MAREEBA Community Housing Company (MCHC) is inviting local residents along to support their annual White Ribbon Day event at Firth Park this Saturday.
The company is hosting a staff and family cricket day to raise awareness for domestic and family violence.
It is their aim to have as many people attending as possible either as players or spectators to show unity and stand against domestic and family violence toward women and children.
People will be able to register to play on the day for a $5 fee with all money going directly towards White Ribbon Australia.
“As a community, we need to change the attitudes that accept this type of behaviour, challenge the social norms that condone or turn a blind eye,” MCHC supervisor of housing services Robert Larkin said.
“We need to stand together as one in protest against domestic and family violence toward the women and children of this community.”
