|The Toowoomba Legacy Club was formed as a group on 22nd December 1945 and was granted its Charter on 26th February 1947.|
Initially the need was to care for the many Widows and Children due to the 2nd World War. Legatees were younger and committed, support continued until that generation of children had grown up. Today the majority of Widows are elderly and many reside in Retirement Villages or Nursing Homes. We care for 770 widows. However we also have in our care 15 children. 7 of these children are School age, 8 attend University.
From the outset the need was to care for the many widows living in the area who were socially isolated and in need of support.
