Kingaroy Police have drawn a line in the sand – quite literally – as part of their stand against domestic violence in the South Burnett.
A special White Ribbon Day breakfast held outside the Kingaroy Police Station on Friday morning featured a large pile of white sand plus a white ribbon.
The sand, delivered by South Burnett Regional Council, was a perfect prop for photographs but also a very physical reminder of what White Ribbon Day is all about.
None of us can bury our heads in the sand …
According to statistics provided by White Ribbon Australia:
The Kingaroy breakfast was organised by Officer-in-Charge of Kingaroy Police, Senior Sergeant David Tierney, in conjunction with South Burnett CTC and Kingaroy Rotary.
The egg and bacon muffins cooked by police officers as well as Rotary and CTC volunteers proved a big hit, with 126 being sold.
Profits from the sale of the burgers will assist local domestic violence services in the South Burnett.
A White Ribbon Day event was also held in Lamb Street, Murgon, on Friday morning, sponsored by South Burnett CTC, the Cherbourg Men’s Shed and the Muran Djan Centre.
