Glenelg District Cricket Club staying safe on the roads
It’s National Road Safety Week, so let’s talk about Glenelg District Cricket Club. The South Australian club is showing their members they care by putting in place some great safe transport initiatives.
The club supports members to get home safely by organising carpools and designated drives, and arranging buses for club functions. They’ve also implemented policies around alcohol and tobacco management.
Sponsorship, Fundraising and Grants Manager, Bob Snewin said the club is proud to be taking proactive steps to ensure the safety of their members.
“Our players are fantastic and have all contributed to a great culture at our club where we look out for one another. Having a Good Sports Safe Transport policy in writing just made sense,” Bob said.
Sporting role models
“We are a diverse and inclusive club with men’s, women’s and junior teams. The Good Sports program enables our club to be the best it can be. It shows our members that we care about their safety and wellbeing,” said Mr Snewin.
Alcohol and Drug Foundation State Manager, Sally Underdown applauded the efforts of Glenelg District Cricket Club.
“The club is a fantastic community asset and a role-model in community sport. It should feel incredibly proud of its strong commitment to building a healthier and safer club,” Sally said.
“Every year, more than 35,000 people are seriously injured. More than 1200 lives are lost on Australian roads. National Road Safety Week reminds drivers, including those from community sporting clubs, that you can make a difference and help make our roads safe,” Sally added.
In South Australia, Good Sports is funded by the Australian Government and the South Australian Government through the THINK! Road Safety Partnerships program.
