Golf day swears to put an end to domestic violence

FATHERS, sons, brothers and friends can take a swing against domestic violence this week.

People from Clarence Valley are invited to join White Ribbon Golf Day on Friday at Maclean Golf Club, to help raise awareness for the White Ribbon Foundation.

Attendees can participate in the My Oath campaign for White Ribbon, by "swearing" to end violence against women - all while having a round of golf and challenging for the White Ribbon Shield.

Event organiser Trevor Kapeen said the Lower Clarence Domestic Violence Committee ass proud to be support White Ribbon, to raise awareness about violence against women in the community, and encouraged others to do the same.

"One-in-three Australian women will be a victim of physical or sexual violence in her lifetime", Kapeen said.

"This could be your mother, sister, daughter or friend. So by supporting this golf day, you will be joining us on the path for prevention and change.

"I am extremely proud to be involved with this community event and be associated with the Lower Clarence Domestic Violence Committee."

For registration of your team contact Maclean Golf Club on 6645 2183.

White Ribbon Ambassador Nathan Blacklock will be coming along.
