Tatura Rotarian Bill Purcell said the club would raise awareness of family violence for the cause again this year, following the success of the past two years.
‘‘Last year 300 white ribbons were sold in Tatura and we will be aiming for double that this year,’’ Mr Purcell said.
‘‘Ribbons will be on sale during the week prior, at the post office, pharmacy and the local newsagency.
‘‘We encourage people to buy a ribbon and wear it to express their support.
‘‘Awareness and education are the two main requirements in reducing this insidious disease.’’
The Tatura Rotary Club will also raise its White Ribbon town flags in Hogan St in the week leading up to White Ribbon Day on November 25.
