Legacy Week Press Release


Legacy Week Badge Appeal
27 August - 2 September 2017.
Badge Day is on Friday 1 September 2017.

LEGACY IS KEEPING THEIR PROMISE


The Legacy Week Appeal aims to build awareness about the importance of Legacy’s work in the community. The campaign also hopes to raise much needed funds to assist the services that Legacy provides to 95,000 families of Australia’s deceased veterans.

Legacy is a unique Australian tradition which is born out of the trenches where a promise was made to a dying mate that “someone would look after the missus and kids.” In 2017 Legacy is asking the Australian public to help Keep The Promise to the dependants incapacitated and deceased veterans buy buying a Badge or making a donation during Legacy Week.

Over 25,000 troops have been deployed overseas since 1999 and over 5,000 new widows of deceased veterans enrol with Legacy every year. We need the public’s assistance to ensure Legacy’s crucial services continue both now and into the future.

Legacy needs your support. You can do so by buying a badge, donating or even volunteering to participate in the appeal by selling Legacy badges in your local community.

The public has given wonderful support to the Appeal in the past and we hope that this will continue in 2017.


FRIENDS OF LEGACY

Towards the end of 2016 Newcastle Legacy received a number of donations from members of the public and quite a few of these were accompanied by an expression of interest in finding out more about the work that Newcastle Legacy does and also interest in assisting in our work.

Of special interest was the number of people who spoke fondly and appreciatively of the role Legacy had played in their lives of their parents, friends or relatives.

Giving the aging profile of Newcastle Legatees and our need for younger minds and legs to meeting our responsibilities, it was decided to establish a group of interested people to be known as "Friends of Legacy". It is appreciated that not all those interested in helping out will have the time and commitment to become Legatees, however it is confidently expected that from "Friends"will emerge some "Legatees"

The first gathering will take place on Tuesday 21st February 2017 at Newcastle Legacy, 205-207 Maitland Rd, Mayfield at 5pm.
