Port Macquarie Hastings Legacy

We work to ensure the families of our veterans are not disadvantaged and can live rich and meaningful lives.

Port Macquarie Hastings Legacy Ltd

At Port Macquarie Hastings Legacy Club we currently care for more than 424 widows/ers and 20 dependants of the 48,000 widow(er)s and 1,800 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia. Legacy is a voluntary organisation supported by volunteers (called Legatees) drawn from all walks of life. If you share the ideals of Legacy and want to assist in our work, we would welcome a membership enquiry from you.

To maintain Legacy’s services we rely heavily on public support. Our principal fundraising activity is the Legacy Week Badge Appeal, held in September each year.

In 1965, my war veteran father died, leaving my mother to raise three children under seven years of age on her own. This was when Legacy stepped in and supported our family for the next 18 years.
When I saw an article in the Camden Haven Courier in 2002 asking for Legacy volunteers, I knew in my heart that it was the right time to give something back to Legacy.
