Last month the Ministry of Health and the NRL partnered to support the Know When to Say When campaign at the NRL’s City v Country game in Coffs Harbour. The Know When to Say When campaign is an important NSW Government education initiative that aims to raise awareness of how much alcohol we are drinking and the possible consequences of not knowing when enough is enough. Some of the games great players like Nathan Hindmarsh, Andrew Ryan and Sean Timmins, who are now ambassadors for the NRL, worked to spread the responsible drinking message.
The free photo booth where spectators could have their photos taken with the ambassadors proved popular on the day with kids as well as the adults. People were given a souvenir print of their photo as well as mini footballs all carrying the main message of the campaign ‘Know When to Say When’. A community service announcement featuring former NRL players and developed as a part of the partnership was also broadcast throughout the day.
