Legacy Week: For almost 100 years, Legacy has kept the promise to thousands of veterans’ families – helping provide financial and social support for those in their care during times of hardship and grief. Legacy has 44 clubs, with a dedicated footprint of over 300 locations across Australia. Support the charity during Legacy Week which runs until Saturday.
This year focuses on Little Badge: Big Impact – the notion that even the smallest of donations will have a real and heart-warming impact on our veterans’ families.
Last year’s face to face fundraising activities were severely impacted across the nation, and we face the struggle again this year of the majority of clubs not being able to fundraise in the streets. However, the community can still show their support by making an online donation to Legacy or purchasing Legacy merchandise including our iconic badges and teddy bears via the online store.
