Buy a badge to sup­port Legacy

Euroa Gazette - - NEWS -

LEGACY Week is fast ap­proach­ing, and soon vol­un­teers will be out and about sell­ing badges so the or­gan­i­sa­tion can con­tinue to care for the fam­i­lies of our in­ca­pac­i­tated and de­ceased vet­er­ans.

This district has a fan­tas­tic tra­di­tion of of­fer­ing tremen­dous sup­port to Legacy dur­ing its fundrais­ing drive, ac­cord­ing to Euroa RSL Vic pres­i­dent Pierre Du­rand.

“We have a num­ber of fam­i­lies here in Euroa, Vi­o­let Town and the sur­round­ing district that rely on Lega­tees for as­sis­tance,” he said.

“Without the tremen­dous sup­port from the com­mu­nity we would not be able to con­tinue to of­fer this sup­port, and so we are hop­ing the com­muntiy will once again give gen­er­ously and buy a badge.”

The funds raised from Legacy Week help Legacy con­tinue to as­sist about 70,000 wid­ows and 1900 chil­dren and peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties Aus­tralia-wide, with es­sen­tial ser­vices such as, coun­selling, spe­cial hous­ing, med­i­cal, ad­vo­cacy and so­cial sup­port.

Pub­lic sup­port will also help Legacy nur­ture chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tion, by con­tribut­ing to­wards their school fees, books, uni­forms, and recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties to aid their self-de­vel­op­ment and con­fi­dence.

Legacy would like to thank all those who con­trib­ute for their in­valu­able sup­port dur­ing their fundrais­ing drive which is es­sen­tial to the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s con­tin­u­a­tion.
