Revolution is all about innocence
THE rain put a kink in the plans for Saturday's Innocence Revolution charity day to end child abuse but the organisers and participants did not let that stop them having a good time at the Springs 4x4 park at the Glen.
Cheryl McLellan from Small Rights Big Change Incorporated said they had had a huge day planned.
"But the rain let us down," she said. "We still have had a brilliant band playing and great support from our sponsors.
"Two detectives from the Warwick police came and spoke about child protection and went through how child sexual abuse can happen to any child.
"The aim of our organisation and this event is to make people aware and let them know it is okay to talk about it."
A survivor of child abuse, who wished not to be named, said child abuse was an ugly topic, but at the same time very real.
"The statistics are frightening," the survivor said.
"Child sexual abuse takes away any dreams you have. It creates a fear.
"The use of extreme sports such as four-wheel driving helps us to conquer that fear."
