Support for Legacy

The following email has been received from Peter Jenke, asking for our support for a very worthy cause which is close to our hearts:

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, greetings.  For those of you who may be shocked to hear from me after – in many cases – a significant time, I apologise, but I hope you will agree, it’s for a good cause.  If you’re not all that familiar with Legacy, look it up, there’s any number or links and references.

As I previously mentioned to many of you, this year, 2023, Legacy commemorates its Centenary and as part of that commemoration, we are conducting a “Relay” (albeit not continuous – thank goodness) – which commences in Pozieres, France, in April and ends in Melbourne, the home of the original Legacy Club, in October this year.   

Many of you, probably most – we’re of that age group – will be familiar with Legacy and the work that it does.  Some of you will be Legatees yourselves and will also be engaged in fund-raising for the Relay.  If this is the case, it’s not my intention to intrude on your territory, so please feel free to ignore me.  In the end it doesn’t matter anyway because it’s all for the same cause.

For those unaware, my other half, Kerry, is currently the President of Melbourne Legacy, the first female to hold that position and herself, a former Junior Legatee in Townsville.  I too, am on the Board of Melbourne Legacy and previously sat on the National Board.  I’m also Secretary For Melbourne Club matters.

Although I’m a ‘runner’ in the Relay in Melbourne, be aware that as many of the participants are my age or older, “running” is hardly an appropriate description for the 200 metres or so I will be walking so, unless anyone’s inclined to sponsor me by the metre (cm?), I would suggest a straight donation is all that’s required – but only if you feels so inclined.

I have no collection goal and no expectations.  The name “Legacy” conveys all the message I have, so if you would like to donate, please follow the link shown below:

Legs for Legacy – Peter Jenke       If you have difficulties accessing the link, please let me know – I will have done something wrong and probably quite stupid.   Sorry.

Thanking you all in advance

Peter Jenke
