Giving out ribbons and tattoos in Oamaru
Myself and two of my adult children give out white ribbons in Oamaru’s main street around the 20 – 25 Nov. Last year I went around the businesses, giving them out and just talking with interested people and women who had suffered abuse or knew others who had. I also gave out ribbons at our Church.
We have Victorian Hertitage Week here from14 – 20 Nov. So a great number of people would be in  Oamaru on the 20th when the White Ribbon Riders are due through.
