Rupert Moon Is Showing Violence The Red Card
Former Wales rugby ace, businessman and TV presenter Rupert Moon is showing his support for the Dyfed-Powys Police Show Violence the Red Card campaign as Wales prepare to take on Belgium in the Euro 2016 quarter finals tonight.
Running throughout the EUFA Euro 2016 football championship, the campaign seeks to prevent violence, and inparticular domestic violence, throughout the Dyfed-Powys region by encouraging people to be mindful of how much alcohol they drink and the effect it could have on their behaviour.
Rupert has saved the referee-style red cards to his mobile phone to use if he spots any trouble during the Euros.
The referee-style red cards emblazoned with the messages ‘drink aware’ and ‘show domestic violence the red card’ have been produced to provide a light-hearted, interactive way to deliver serious messages.
The campaign encourages football fans to be mindful of how much alcohol they’re drinking and how they’re behaving to prevent violence whether out at a pub, a football club or in the comfort of their own homes.
Rupert Moon said: “I fully support Dyfed-Powys Police’s Show Violence the Red Card campaign. Wales reaching this stage of the Euros 2016 is a massive achievement in itself. Don’t ruin the enjoyment of the occasion by getting too drunk and hitting out whether in the pub or at home.”
The red cards are being distributed to licensees that will be showing the Euro 2016 games. Bar staff and customers will be encouraged to hold up a red card if they see any inappropriate behaviour to stop it escalating to violence.
Members of the public are also invited to get involved in the campaign by posting photos of themselves holding up the campaign red cards on the Dyfed-Powys Police Facebook and Twitter pages using #redcardtoviolence. The images are available on the force’s Twitter and Facebook profiles or website.
