ARARAT - Buy a Legacy badge this 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 during Legacy Week.
Legatee Terry Hinch said Ararat Legacy supports 207 widows in the wider area and the funds raised from badges sold goes towards assisting them in their day to day living or in providing enjoyable outings for them.
Last year across the district around $15,000 was raised through the sale of badges.
Ararat Legatees and volunteers will be selling badges in Barkly Street and at Woolworths and IGA supermarkets on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, so look out for them and buy a badge.
