The De­niliquin Legacy Group has been forced to can­cel its tra­di­tional face-to-face Ap­peals Week ac­tiv­i­ties this year.

Ow­ing to COVID-19 risks, the group will not be sell­ing badges but is still ask­ing the com­mu­nity to sup­port its en­deav­ours through di­rect do­na­tions.

Legacy was ini­tially formed in 1923 as a means of sup­port­ing re­turned ser­vice per­son­nel suf­fer­ing men­tal health is­sues.

The role of the group ex­panded to sup­port the wid­ows and fam­i­lies of those who had served.

‘‘Along with so many other char­i­ties who rely on the gen­eros­ity of you to ful­fil their role within the com­mu­nity, we are seek­ing your sup­port,’’ De­niliquin Legacy pres­i­dent Tony Cul­len­ward said.

‘‘Do­na­tions can be sent to PO Box 364, De­niliquin, and all will be ac­knowl­edged with a tax de­ductable re­ceipt.

‘‘Al­ter­na­tively, if you wish to make a di­rect de­posit, you can con­tact me for the de­tails.’’

Sup­port is mostly in the form of so­cial con­tact and in­clu­sion by the lega­tees, vis­it­ing their al­lo­cated wid­ows on a reg­u­lar ba­sis. Fi­nan­cial sup­port is also some­times re­quired.

De­niliquin Legacy Group cov­ers the De­niliquin, Fin­ley, Ber­ri­gan and Jer­ilderie ar­eas.

For more in­for­ma­tion or do­na­tion de­tails, call Mr Cul­len­ward on 0456 232 301.
