The Queensland Government and London Legacy have formed a new formal arrangement to support the families of Australan defence forces in Europe during the charity’s busiest fundraising time around ANZAC Day.
A temporary arrangement to share Trade Queensland’s office space at Queensland House with London Legacy is in order to fully enhance the charity’s work in the lead up to and the time following ANZAC Day.
The office opened on February 1, and is now seeking the help of more part-time volunteers to help with their campaign.
London Legacy is a voluntary organisation of veterans, servicemen and servicewomen and other volunteers, who provide care for dependants of Australia and New Zealand Defence Force members based throughout Europe.
This will set up with a fully set-up office for London Legacy, who are now seeking volunteers to help them complete their charity work in London.
“The Queensland Government and Trade Queensland’s assistance to London Legacy provides us with a wonder space to base and manage our fundraising activities particularly around the ANZAC Day period. We are very pleased and grateful for this magnificent support,” said President of London Legacy, Lindsay Birrell.
“It will also provide the basis for London Legacy to find permanent office space for the future."
The charity is now seeking the help of more part-time volunteers to help with their campaign and Mr Birrell said this is a great chance for Australian expats to support the families of the country’s Defence services.
