Historical information
This photo shows a few of Legacy's disabled dependents on an outing to a bowling alley. Every month Legacy's handicapped dependents were invited to go on outing for take part in recreational and educational activities. These programmes aimed to develop independence and thus lessen the need for reliance on others for simple routine functions. Once a year there is a two week camp this also gave the mothers some respite.
The photos are from early 1994 as they were featured in the Answer newsletter in April 1994.
Significance
A record of the type of activities Legacy provided for the handicapped dependents of the Legacy families.
Names on a slip of paper have tried to identify the dependents. 'Russell Sister, Julie Kenny (?), David Mossof (?)'
