Warrnambool Legacy Club received their Charter in September 1947. The Warrnambool Legacy Club office is situated in Warrnambool in the South West of Victoria covering three municipal areas. The Club supports 200 families.
Warrnambool Legacy Club members are dedicated to the care of deceased and incapacitated veterans’ widows and families.
Forty-two (42) active members provide this care and support by home, hospital, residential care visits. Phone calls and social activities ensure that recipients are not socially isolated and in turn all welfare needs are met in a timely manner.
This would not be possible without the support from the community and local businesses. This is self-evident during Legacy Week when volunteers and Legatees join forces to engage with the community in our annual fundraising event for Warrnambool Legacy.
