Cheltenham supports TAC’s Towards Zero

Cheltenham Football Netball Club is getting behind the TAC’s Towards Zero campaign to help raise awareness for safety on our roads with the ultimate aim of no road deaths and serious injuries. 

The TAC has launched this targeted campaign through grassroots clubs to raise awareness in the heart of the community about the importance of safety on our roads, as there has been a sharp increase (up 60 per cent) in the death toll on Victorian roads this year.

On August 3, senior captain Jack Worrell, and brother Tom, will wear special one-off TAC Towards Zero playing guernseys with the number ‘0’ on the back.

In 2006, Jack and Tom’s mother, Lyn, was tragically killed when a speeding vehicle struck her car. She also left behind her loving husband Steve, as well as the couple’s third son Max and left the tight-knit family devastated.

The Cheltenham Football Netball Club is encouraging the local community to get behind this great cause and get down to Jack Barker Oval!
