Legacy Week is Australia’s iconic fundraising campaign which began in 1942. It is also known for its Badge Day and the iconic badges and other memorabilia offered as a token of appreciation for the donation made by the public.
Legacy Week is the annual national appeal to raise awareness and funds for the families of our incapacitated and deceased Veterans. It is held in towns and cities big and small across Australia and supported by young and old.
The funds raised from Legacy Week help Legacy continue to assist approximately 60,000 beneficiaries, with 96% of them being elderly widows throughout Australia, with essential services such as, counselling, special housing, medical, advocacy and social support.
There are thousands of Australian Defence Force personnel currently deployed overseas. Legacy stands ready to assist their families should the worst happen. In Boorowa Legacy members will be selling badges outside the IGA in Boorowa on Thursday 6 September and Friday 7 September.
