White Ribbon March, Stirling

On Thursday 3rd December 2009 Stirling was once again the proud host of the annual White Ribbon March. Ably led by Central Scotland Police Pipe Band, hundreds of men, women and children joined in the march in order to demonstrate their support for the White Ribbon Campaign. As part of the 16 Days of Action Against Violence Against Women the march has become a standing item in the programme of events that take place across Scotland and is becoming more successful each year.

The weather held out as the masses gathered next to Stirling Castle prior to beginning the descent through the city centre. Following the pipe band were pupils from the Queen Victoria School in Dunblane who carried a giant White Ribbon at the heart of the march. The march attracted a lot of attention from late-night shoppers on its way through the centre to the Stirling Council Viewforth buildings where mulled wine and mince pies were waiting to warm up the group! There was a chance for people from the various violence against women services to meet to discuss the great work that is being carried out across the country and the Lord Provost, Fergus McEwan, delivered an address in support of the march. The White Ribbon March 2010 is already being planned for Thursday 2nd December and we hope that even more people will take part.
