Clunes and Learmonth

join the

White Ribbon Campaign

in memory of Sharon Siermans

                                                                                       Saturday 2nd of August

Clunes and Learmonth Football Netball Clubs have decided to dedicate their Round 15 match at Learmonth to the White Ribbon Foundation. The White Ribbon Foundation is the only “male-led” campaign dedicated to stopping violence against women.

A Football Club environment engages a large part of the community and therefore offers the ideal platform to raise awareness of domestic violence.

 Family Violence does not discriminate and happens within all types of families and partner relationships across all age groups, socio economic status, cultures and communities. Family violence is most commonly perpetrated by men towards women.  Violence towards women is the leading contributor of poor health amongst women and an alarming number of family violence incidents continue to go unreported to police.

In fact over 140 cases per month are reported in the Ballarat district. Making the Ballarat area higher than metropolitan Melbourne. These statistics are frightening within our local area and highlight the importance of every individual and community raising up and taking a stand against violence against women.

Sharon played netball at both Learmonth and Clunes. So on this match day we will take the opportunity to reinforce our support for the White Ribbon Foundation and raise awareness of domestic violence.

All players will wear white arm bands and each match will start with a white football. We will have donation tins available on the day with all proceeds going to the Ballarat White Ribbon Day Committee. Sgt Ivan Blomeley (representing Ballarat White Ribbon Day Committee) and Sgt Joseph Cahir (representing Victoria Police) will host afternoon tea at half time of the seniors for all those wishing to attend.
