KNA sports a safety theme
The Karratha Netball Association received several netballs last week as part of the Insurance Commission of Western Australia’s Belt Up campaign.
Belt Up is a State Government initiative that promotes wearing seatbelts on WA roads to reduce the severity of injury in a crash.
Member for Mining and Pastoral Region Mark Lewis presented the balls to several members of the association at Karratha Leisureplex on Monday night.
Mr Lewis said he was pleased to be supporting the Belt Up campaign.
“As the Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region, the Belt Up message is particularly important given that regional drivers are significantly over-represented in road fatality and injury statistics where seatbelts were not worn,” he said.
A spokeswoman for the Karratha Netball Association thanked the State Government and the ICWA for their ongoing support for the game.
Netball WA has teamed up with the ICWA for the past three years to deliver the Belt Up message.
