Widows and dependants
Widows and dependants - Legacy
|Through its many opportunities and programs for widows, Legacy brings together people with a shared experience, providing a platform for friendship and support. |
|Whilst operating under a number of different names, including Torch Bearers, Women’s Auxiliary, Widows and Laurel Clubs, each of these groups exist to provide companionship, outings and activities for its members. |
These groups offer invaluable support to Legacy through their own fundraising endeavours, and assistance in many other activities.
Typical of the many widows who support Legacy is Gwen Smart. Gwen is an active member of her local Care Group and assists in Legacy House each Friday.
"I’m grateful for what Legacy did for me after Ced died. However, that’s not the reason that I help out at Legacy House. By helping out I keep active and involved. It’s great to feel that you are doing something to help others and it’s great to be valued."
|If you are a Legacy widow in need of personal advice or assistance please contact your local Legacy Club.|
