Support Legacy in their new home

New Legacy office in Booval

A new era for Ipswich Legacy has begun with the move of its administration office from the Soldiers Memorial Hall in Nicholas Street Ipswich into its own property at Booval.

After 87 years of serving the families of deceased veterans, Legacy decided it was time to move into a space with more opportunities to serve its families.

The new premises have space for group meetings, activity groups and a place for Legacy people to drop in for a chat and a cup of tea.

Legacy House-Ipswich is now located at 105 Brisbane Road, Booval, on the corner of Eileen Street and Brisbane Road. Beside the administration building is Legacy Court consisting of 18 units managed and owned by Legacy.

The building was officially opened on the 26th of August by local MP Jennifer Howard and included guided tours by legatees and staff, sale of merchandise and an afternoon tea.

The day marked the commencement of Legacy’s annual fund raising “Badge Week” that is the organisation’s major fundraising event of the year.

The funds raised through Legacy Week help Legacy continue to assist about 450 widows and the many children and families of disabled Service personnel in the Ipswich area.

Legacy provides essential services such as special housing, advocacy and social support.

Public support also helps Legacy nurture children’s education by contributing to essentials such as school fees, books, uniforms, and recreational activities to aid their self-development and confidence.

There are thousands of Australian Defence Force personnel deployed overseas. Legacy stands ready to assist their families should the worst happen.

You can help these families by becoming a volunteer or a donor now. All funds raised helps Ipswich Legacy continue their essential role in the community.
