Australia’s Legacy Week appeal (28 August – 3 September) is a time for all Australians to show their support for the widows, widowers, and children whose loved ones have served our country.
Legacy was founded in Melbourne by Captain Stanley Savige in 1923 and currently supports 43,000 individuals across forty-four Legacy clubs in Australia, and one in London.
Legacy Week, which has been running since the 1940’s, is a time for all Australians to show support to those who have served our country and you can do this by purchasing a Legacy badge and wearing it on Badge Day (2 September).
Shadow Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Barnaby Joyce, said Legacy’s work ensures families affected by conflict can continue to lead high-quality lives.
“If we remember Australians who have served, suffered or passed we must care for those left behind for as long as they need the support, they would have otherwise received from those who served.”
“I encourage each and every Australian to get behind this cause and when you see a Legacy badge on Friday, to stop and think about what these families have given for our nation,” Mr Joyce said.
