SCONE Legacy Group has raised almost $4000 for the widows and families of Australia’s Veterans.
President John Brooks and fellow volunteer Peter Allen set up a stall outside the Reject Shop on Kelly Street last Friday for the annual fundraiser.
Mr Brooks said he was grateful to the local community’s support, especially with the amount of other fundraisers on over the past couple of weeks.
“Small country towns are extremely generous in general, but Scone is just incredible,” he said.
“There was Daffodil Day a week earlier, which made $8000 for the Cancer Council, so to get this total is a great effort.
“We are proud that you have supported us in the past so that we do not have to rely on handouts from Sydney Legacy.
“Your donation will be spent locally for the benefit of local war widows.”
Scone Legacy Group provides care for an average of 75 war widows who reside in the region.
It attempts to get the best possible pension and services to them, and also hosts a Christmas luncheon and Mother’s Day lunch.
