Kempsey Saints will this weekend host a charity event in support of the white ribbon foundation as part of their global movement of men and boys working to end male violence against women and girls.
In the Women's Northern League A grade the Saints girls will take on Camden Haven Redbacks at Eden Street, 1 o'clock, while B grade play Port Saints Foxes.
"We decided this year to fundraise for the white ribbon foundation because domestic violence is something that we feel isn't talked about enough with high statistics in rural communities," Kempsey Saints Liana Tyne told the Argus.
"We're doing a white ribbon day on July 24 with both senior women's teams wearing white ribbon socks.
"We'll have a cake stall, hairspray, face painting and be selling raffle tickets and 100 club.
"On the night we'll have a white ribbon event at West Kempsey Hotel with cocktail and dinner specials.
"With every drink sold $2 goes to the white ribbon foundation thanks to the Hotel and we'll do our raffle and 100 club prizes there."
In the B grade, Saints currently sit fourth while Lower Macleay Brumbies are in second.
A grade has Saints in second behind Macleay Valley Rangers after their 6-0 win over Upper Macleay.
Rangers had a 3-1 win over the Redbacks last weekend.
