VIDEO: Jets support White Ribbon Day

AS Newcastle Jets supporters descend on Hunter Stadium tomorrow they will be greeted by a giant white ribbon at the front gates.

The new addition is part of the club’s support for the White Ribbon campaign, which aims to create awareness about violence against women.

Using the clash against the Wellington Phoenix as a platform for the launch, a few of the players will actively get involved on match day.

Half an hour before the 3pm kick-off a couple of the Jets playing roster will head out on to the family hill to hand out White Ribbon cards and temporary tattoos.

A special video message will also play on the big screen.

Team members are encouraging Hunter residents to swear an oath never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women.

 Ribbons will sell for $2.

White Ribbon Day is  held on November 25 and The Hunter White Ribbon Day Committee will hold a breakfast on Friday November 23 from 7am  to further support the cause.
