No butts as footy club leads way MT Martha Junior Football Club is the first junior sporting club to sign on to the Frankston Mornington Peninsula Smoke Free Charter. President Warren Davies said the club hoped other sporting clubs will follow their lead and sign the charter. â€œItâ€™s been really well received at the club. Even the smokers think itâ€™s a good initiative; they donâ€™t want their kids to become smokers either, so theyâ€™re happy to be involved.â€? By signing the charter, the club has made a public commitment to reduce the number of people who smoke and to protect people from the damaging effects of secondhand smoke through putting up more â€œno smokingâ€? signs. â€œItâ€™s about educating and role modelling for the kids,â€? Mr Davies said. â€œThere wonâ€™t be any coaches, runners or supporters smoking on the sidelines and thereâ€™ll be information in the clubrooms about the dangers of smoking.â€? Health promotion practitioner Andie Murphy is asking sporting clubs to join the junior football club and support smoke-free sporting. â€œSmoking rates on the Mornington Peninsula are 10 per cent higher than the Victorian average,â€? he said. â€œBy making a stand against smoking, sporting clubs can help empower the community to take action for their health and wellbeing â€“ after all, sporting clubs are the heartbeat of our community.â€? Sporting clubs interested in talking action can email Andie Murphy at amurphy@phcn. vic.gov.au Peninsula Health has quit smoking support services at Frankston, Rosebud, Mornington and Hastings.
