The 2019 we saw Legacy SA & BH hit a huge milestone with 90 years of serving families of our Australian Defence Force veterans. For 90 years Legacy has been keeping the promise of one digger to his dying mate “to look after the missus and the kids”.  Symbolic to the milestone the inaugural event saw Charlotte, our little 4 year old who lost her father in tragic circumstances at only 2 years of age, and Mrs Phyllis Schmidt our 94 year old widow commence the walk by untying the Legacy ribbon.

Impact:

The money spent played a big part in the 2019 service provisions of items as follows:

  • 73 holidays provided at Legacy’s holiday cottages
  • 82 Utility Grants proved
  • 45 Bus trips
  • 60 Education Grants
  • 86 appointments facilitated for Legal and Financial counselling
