YouthVision Promotions (YVP) has launched a new Clubs Against Violence campaign in the lead up to the annual Cup Match Classic to be held at St George’s Cricket Club this year.
According to Desmond Crockwell, YVP Director: “Our clubs have agreed to promote VISIONZ Anti-Violence magazines and posters in their establishments to be distributed to their patrons.
“As we are aware much of the anti-social behaviour has taken place in these establishments and it is our mandate to promote the anti-violence message where and when we can.
“Some of the articles in our magazines are from people who have been a part of the anti-social crowd and /or come from the sports clubs and can relate to many of our young people who partake in these violent acts.
“As a small business, it is our mandate to do what we can and to be consistent with our campaigns and initiatives. We are excited to be partnering with participating clubs and look forward to collaborating with other clubs to push the anti-violence message.
“We have been in talks with many of these clubs, and feel optimistic that they understand the importance of what we are doing and look forward to their participation,” he said.
Grateful for the support received so far, on promoting the anti-violence message, Mr Crockwell added: “As we started with the clubs in the eastern end, so far we have St David’s CC, St George’s CC, Baileys Bay CC, Hamilton Parish Workmans Club, and we are in talks with Western Stars Sports Club.”
