It might be a "totally different" Legacy Week, but the Tamworth branch is doing everything it can to keep supporting the families of servicemen and women.
Legacy Week launched on Sunday, and the major fundraiser usually helps boost the charity's bank account enough to keep it going for the next year.
Tamworth Legacy president Greg Roese said COVID-19 precautions mean the usual volunteers who roam the streets on Badge Day at the end of the week - schoolkids, community members, defence force personnel - have been put off, and a downturn in donations is expected.
But, a group of about 14 Legacy members are committed to keeping the tradition alive.
The volunteers will set up stationary stalls to sell merchandise and the famous badges, and will have 'tap to donate' options and cash collection buckets.
"I hope the community will support us ... even if we don't sell much or get many donations, at least we're publicising Legacy is still there and supporting veterans and families," Mr Roese said.
Locals can find Legacy Badge Day stalls set up at the post office in Peel Street, Shoppingworld, Northgate and Tamworth Square on Friday. The volunteers will be in the same spots on Saturday, minus the post office location.
"We'll have the usual Legacy badges, pens and Legacy bears ... all donations are well accepted and received," Mr Roese said.
COVID-19 has forced the organisation to "move forward with the times" and give supporters the option to donate coin using cards instead of cash.
The pandemic has been hard on Legacy. The charity has had to cancel fundraisers, and the people they care for are more isolated than ever. "It's been a very difficult year," Mr Roese said.
Legacy in Australia has held a badge day annually since 1942 to raise funds to support the families of veterans.
