Colourful message worked
Friday, 3rd July, 2015
A day to raise awareness of child sexual assault and domestic violence was a success, according to local organisers.
The Broken Hill Domestic Violence Committee held a stall at Westside Plaza for Purple Ribbon Day yesterday.
President of the committee Eleanor Blows said a day is held for it every July.
“It is an awareness day that is held all over Australia,” Mrs Blows said.
“It has received a big response. We’ve had a lot of people coming up making inquiries and collecting information and sample bags.
“All of which were donated.”
Mrs Blows said the event was also well-supported by local volunteers.
The display of purple ribbons throughout the community conveys the powerful message that there is no place for domestic violence, including child sexual assault.
