Bundaberg hosts Domestic Violence Awareness Round

Sunday, May 22 will be coloured “Purple” when Western Suburbs Rugby League Football Club will play host to Domestic Violence and Prevention in association with the Uniting Care Community.

Western Suburbs players, along with all other participating clubs that day, will be wearing purple socks to draw public awareness of domestic and family violence within the local community in Bundaberg and Districts.

Bundaberg Rugby League Chairman Mike Ireland spoke at the recent monthly meeting saying he believes it’s vital that a strong message is conveyed to the public and this is a perfect way to spread awareness and join the pledge to say NO to domestic violence.

QRL Central Division announced at their recent Meeting in Roma that they have teamed up with Rize Up and will be dedicating a Round within the Division to be held on Saturday, August 13 with the aim of creating Domestic Violence Awareness and support through Education and Fundraising.
