Legacy – role with no end

WHEN legatee Tom Cross introduced the Legacy service of remembrance, he recalled pondering how much longer Legacy would be around.

He said it didn't take long to realise legatees would be needed for a long time.

"There was a time when I thought Legacy may slowly fade away, but recent peace-keeping missions in various Middle Eastern countries have shown a message that is very clear; this job will never end," Mr Cross said.

Legacy supports 400 war widows in the Valley.

The service marked the start of Legacy Week, so look out for volunteers selling badges and bears.
