Monthly markets to raise awareness of domestic violence

The Rotary Club of Wellington aims to spread an important message at their monthly markets in November.

The November 25 market day will be held in conjunction with White Ribbon Day and will be used as an opportunity to raise awareness of domestic and family violence.

Rotary president, David Ryan, encourages the community to support the day which will include include a service in Cameron Park at 11am.

“I was keen to see us as an organisation use the opportunity for men to set a standard that we won’t accept any form of violence against women,” Mr Ryan said.

“This is an opportunity to say that sort of conversation is not on and we as men don't want to support that view on women.”
