Anzac Day is one of Australia’s most important national occasions, marking the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.  ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.  The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, a pride that still exists to this day.

Each Anzac Day we commemorate the contribution, as well as the lives of Australians and New Zealanders lost in military operations. Whilst recognising the contribution of those who served, the Legacy Club of South Australia & Broken Hill (Legacy) has as its principal purpose to serve the families of those who served.

Legacy is passionate that no dependant of a veteran – deceased or incapacitated – ever suffers from social or financial disadvantage. For Legacy to carry out its work it undertakes a range of fundraising activities to support the families of service men and women.  This includes providing childcare assistance, assisting with school fees or social activities like gymnastics classes, supporting the payment of bills, food vouchers, or emergency support to assist a family in crisis.

Thank you for helping Legacy to keep the promise made on the battlefield in 1923 to assist veterans’ families carry on with their lives after the loss or injury of their loved one.
