MANY HELPED ARE A LASTING LEGACY
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 www.legacy.com.au It is your opportunity to be part of a lasting legacy.
