BBQ spreads message

The White Ribbon sausage sizzle on Friday, organised by Violence Free Waipa, reinforced the message of non-violence. Pictured: Dianne Carter and Hannah Glover.

The annual White Ribbon barbeque fed hungry crowds on Friday, with 150 Wholly Cow sausages eaten, 3.5 kgs of onions consumed, 10 loaves of bread from Vege fresh, lots of sauces, serviettes and rubbish sacks from New World. All donations, no cost… donations $266.90. Lots of great feedback about the message tied in with the Champions Campaign, posters, white ribbon presence, media, Facebook etc. Lots of comments on the white ribbon momentum, awareness growing and people speaking out.

A massive thanks to everyone in the community and businesses who sported white ribbons in their windows.
