It is Legacy Week from August 28 to September 2 and there is plenty of merchandise you can buy to support this organisation.

All money raised within each Legacy district will be retained to support the Legacy widows and wards of the local area.

You will see tables selling the merchandise across the region from shopping malls and street stalls.

Singleton Legacy spokesperson Fred Turner said the merchandise has been expanded and this year will include a range of stubbie holders, different key rings and pens.

“We are pleased to be able to sell these, over the years it has been a range of badges but it is good to have something new,” Fred said.

Singleton 2022 Young Achiever of the Year Liam Byrne and friends, Jess and Lachlan Fleming, intend to hit the streets seeking financial support and have a combined $3000 fund raising target.

Liam and Lachlan have been involved in the Legacy campaign for a number of years and fully understand the good work the organisation provides the local community.

In Singleton there are 48 widows and five wards supported by Legacy.

A point of difference for the Singleton group is that they endeavour to make monthly contact will all the widows and wards to ensure they receive the support they deserve.

The challenge over the past few years is that the widows have often been involved in the fund raising, as have local school students, but they are unable to do so due to covid constraints.

“We are lucky to have the support of our local soldiers so if you see them around, please support Legacy Week,” Fred Said.
