It’s Legacy Badge Week

Legacy Badge Week begins today – Saturday – with the sale of badges, keyrings, and wrist bands, with all proceeds to help the work Legacy Broken Hill does for local Legacy widows.

The nationwide drive is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the organisation, and this year you will be able to support the cause with Legacy paraphernalia on sale at servos and stores across the Silver City.

The Legacy Broken Hill team will be in the Town Square on Wednesday from 9.30am until lunchtime, cooking a sausage sizzle and selling all the above-mentioned products, along with bears too. Legacy secretary Mark Winen explains, “there’re all different kinds of bears. Nurse bears, Army bears, Air Force bears.”

And if you miss out on Wednesday, they will be at Coles on Gossan St on Thursday all day too.

“It is one of the biggest weeks for Legacy Australia wide, and it is no different for us at Legacy Broken Hill,” Mr Winen said.

“It is important to look after our Legacy widows and the proceeds from Badge Week are crucial. Anything to make them safe and comfortable, that’s what this money goes towards. Especially nowadays with everything going up in price, times are tough, so please let’s all help with this fundraiser.”
