THE lat­est con­flicts in the Mid­dle East have brought the hor­rors of war to the fore­front in re­cent years. Many of our sol­diers have been killed and in­jured and that in­creases the im­por­tance of Legacy, the or­gan­i­sa­tion that helps the wid­ows and chil­dren of peo­ple who have served in the armed forces. Legacy was es­tab­lished by re­turned vet­er­ans from World War I and sup­ports 100,000 wid­ows and 1800 chil­dren – as well as peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties – Aus­tralia-wide. Last week was Legacy Week. The an­nual fundrais­ing cam­paign helps to pro­vide es­sen­tial ser­vices such as coun­selling, spe­cial hous­ing, med­i­cal as­sis­tance, ad­vo­cacy and so­cial support. The or­gan­i­sa­tion needs pub­lic support to en­sure it is able to pro­vide long-term care for the fam­i­lies of our sol­diers. To do­nate to Legacy, or to find out more about Legacy Week or the work that Legacy does, visit It is your op­por­tu­nity to be part of a last­ing legacy.
