Legacy Badge Week starts 29th Aug
FOR 62 years, Legacy Fraser Coast and Country Burnett has provided vital support to hundreds of local war widows, veterans and children of deceased veterans.
Now it's the Fraser Coast's turn to return the favour.
Legacy Badge Week, which runs from tomorrow until September 4, is the club's “single most important fundraising event of the year” and makes up 50% of its annual income.
Mayor Mick Kruger launched Legacy Badge Week in Maryborough at the weekend and encouraged everyone to dig deep.
“Fraser Burnett Legacy supports and assists 882 widows and 13 children of local deceased veterans,” he said.
Mr Kruger also officially opened the club's new Maryborough office at 134 Bazaar Street.
Residents can support Legacy Badge Week by buying a badge, ranging from $5 to $100, or make a tax deductible donation.
