Legacy Week 2017:
Sunday 27 August – Saturday 2 September
Badge Day – Friday 1 September

Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering after the injury or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service. We currently care for around 65,000 widow(er)s and 1,800 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.

Legacy Week is Australia’s iconic fundraising campaign which began in 1942. It is also known for its Badge Day and the iconic badges offered as a token of appreciation for the donation made by the public.
