BATHURST Legacy is preparing for its biggest fundraising day of the year this Friday.

Volunteer students from the six Bathurst high schools will be selling badges, pens and teddy bears in the CBD and shopping centres from 9.30am on Friday as Legacy Badge Day is held around Australia.

Legatees will also go around the pubs on Friday night to raise funds for the cause.

Money raised will be used to support Legacy widows and dependants.
