Legacy will hold one of its biggest fundraisers of the year this Sunday - it’s the annual charity golf day at the BH Golf and Country Club.

And Legacy Secretary Mark Winen is inviting everyone to get together with family and friends and enter the four-person Ambrose competition.

Teams can be made up of men, women and children and entry costs $20 for members, $25 for non members and is free for juniors.

There will be a sausage sizzle, steak sandwiches and refreshments available as well as raffles throughout the day.  

The competition is over 18 holes and gets underway with a shotgun start at 11am.

“Money raised will be used to continue to support local war widows,” Mr Winen said.

“Broken Hill businesses have supported us very well.” 

A Legacy team is now conducting its home safety program which includes ensuring smoke alarms are in good working order in the widows’ homes. 

“It’s really anything to help them stay in their homes for as long as possible,” Mr Winen said.

“We’ve good a good crew; everyone supports each other.”  

The charity supports upwards of 208 widows in the city. 

To nominate for the big golf day, phone the Golf Shop on 80879099.
