Wellington Legacy (WL) has received over $600 in donations from groups and businesses in town. Legacy’s Loraine Gould said the money is extremely appreciated.

“Being a completely not-for-profit group who receives no funding from council or government, we rely on donations,” she said.

Wellington Senior Rugby and the Twin Rivers Fishing Club (TRFC) donated the largest sums, contributing roughly $400 and $100 respectively.

Ms Gould said electrician Jared Wykes is used regularly by Legacy.

“Lately we’re helping out war widows in town with security for their homes, and Jared has been of great help with a lot of that.

“There have been a few break-ins over the last couple of months and we want to help make these ladies feel safe in their own homes. They’ve suffered enough, losing their loved ones in the war efforts, they don’t need to deal with this too,” Ms Gould said.

Mr Wykes said the TRFC and Wellington Senior Rugby are happy to support charitable groups.
