Local schools takes part in White Ribbon Night

Wingham Public School will participate in White Ribbon Night and has signed up for the 'Breaking the Silence' campaign.

White Ribbon Night invites communities across Australia to unite in support of bringing an end to violence against women by having a night in to get the word out about the importance of standing up to end violence against women.

White Ribbon Night 2014 is on Friday July 25.

Ways that people can lend their support to White Ribbon Night include:

*  Donating to White Ribbon online by going to www.whiteribbon.org.au/donate/wrn-donation-only

*  Selling White Ribbons or wristbands to raise funds for White Ribbon

*  Registering a 'Night In' with friends and family and ask guests to donate what they would spend on an average night out

Those who register online at www.whiteribbon.org.au/night will then become an official White Ribbon Night host and receive resources to help organise your 'Night In'.

Donations will support White Ribbon's work to prevent violence against women before it occurs and help drive social change.

Donations over $2 are tax deductible.
