LEGACY Week 2012 has kicked off in fine form with the Grafton District Services Club donating $2500 to the Grafton Legacy Branch.

Grafton Legacy members Bob McFarlane and Ron Shoebridge accepted the money from GDSC president Warren Tozer on Friday at the club before yesterday's official launch of Legacy Week.

Mr Shoebridge said the money was an extremely welcome boost and a great way to get Legacy's annual fundraising week up and running.

"The club makes a donation every year at the beginning of Legacy Week.

"It's a very welcome boost and we'll be using that money and the money we raise during the week to support our war widows here in the Clarence Valley."

Mr Shoebridge said Legacy Grafton helped about 400 war widows and families in the Clarence Valley.

Mr Tozer said the club was always happy to help such a worthy cause and said it had become a tradition to donate the money to Legacy at this time every year.

"We as an RSL club naturally have a strong commitment to the returned men and their widows of course," Mr Tozer said.

"It's a very worthy cause so we're happy to be able to play a part in what these guys do in the community."

Mr Shoebridge said Legacy members and Legacy volunteers would be out and about on the pavements and in shopping centres around the Valley all week selling badges to raise money for this worthwhile cause.
