Club History

Ballarat Legacy Club was founded in 1926 by William Brazenor and R C Bishop, it was the third Legacy Club founded in Australia. From the outset the need was to look after the interests of children of deceased soldiers in the Ballarat district. A short time later this was extended to include the widows of their deceased comrades.

Over time Ballarat Legacy Club extended Its influence to a wider area and now includes Bacchus Marsh in the East to St.Arnaud in the West; Daylesford to the North and Meridith to the South.

Identifying a need for companionship, in 1961 Ballarat Legacy Club founded the first 'Laurel Club' for the widows. Today most Legacy Clubs have similar arrangements.

Today Ballarat Legacy Club maintains a membership of approximately 90Legatees and assists more than 500 widows and dependents.
