ON behalf of Bathurst Legacy, I would like to thank residents in the local area for their generosity during Legacy Week, August 31 to September 8.
The support of the public for families of veterans who have given their lives or health continues to allow Legacy to support them in many ways.
Legacy has been supporting veterans’ families for more than 90 years and will be needed well into the future.
There is an increasing number of young families turning to Legacy for help as they attempt to keep their lives on course as their veteran spouse or parent deals with their personal ravages of active service or other serious issues.
Legacy provides practical, emotional and financial support to all in the Legacy family, from children through to ageing widows.
In particular, I would like to thank the Army Reserves and students from all of the local high schools who assisted to sell our iconic badges, bears and other items.
If anyone missed us, they can donate at www.legacyweekappeal.com.au or phone 9248 9009.
