ARARAT - Buy a Legacy badge, pen, wristband or teddy bear next week and you will be helping support families of those lost as a result of war and other conflict.
Ararat Legacy, which covers the areas of Ararat, Stawell, Avoca, Beaufort, Lake Bolac, Wickliffe, Streatham and Willaura, will be selling the iconic badges along with other items during Legacy Week.
Legatee Terry Hinch said Ararat Legacy supports about 200 widows in the wider area and the funds raised from accessories sold goes towards assisting the organisation in their day to day living or in providing enjoyable outings for them.
Last year across the district around $13,400 was raised through the sale of badges.
Ararat Legatees and volunteers will be selling badges in Barkly Street and at Woolworths and IGA supermarkets from Thursday morning, so be on the look out and buy a badge, pen, wristband or teddy bear.
