Harcourts’ heels to pavement for White Ribbon

HARCOURTS Tasmania staff have put on their high heels and walked a mile in the shoes of domestic violence victims for White Ribbon Australia.

On Friday 31 August, staff from the Hobart area, including VIPs Mick Newell, Matt Newell, Sarah Morrison and White Ribbon ambassador Damon Thomas, were all in attendance for the walk.

The Walk a Mile event started in the Elizabeth Street Mall, turned left onto Liverpool Street and left onto Murray Street and down into Salamanca Square.

The event has been held around the nation since 2013 by the Harcourts Foundation and each year more than 600 supporters have ‘walked a mile’ in heeled shoes to show solidarity and bring attention to the national tragedy that is violence against women.

The Harcourts Foundation has raised more than $400,000 for White Ribbon since 2013, assisting in the national expansion of its ‘Breaking the Silence’ program.

If you are experiencing violence or suspect someone else is, please contact 1800 RESPECT for advice and support.

In the event of an emergency, please call the Police on 000.
