Legacy is one of Australia's best regarded community organisations. Established in 1923, the organisation supports the families of deceased veterans from all branches of Australia's Armed Forces.
Made up of volunteers, Legacy today is dedicated to caring for and assisting 115,000 widows as well as 1,900 children and dependents with a disability. Tobin Brothers Canberra Funerals supports Legacy's fund-raising activities.
We also support Legacy's volunteers with coping with grief information, and give our customary care and support to the families Legacy supports whenever it is needed.
The Lions are one of the world's best known community organisations and the Recycle for Sight program is one of their most important initiatives.
Eye glasses are collected, repaired and cleaned, and then sent to communities in the developing world where they are distributed to people who otherwise would have no access to them. A simple pair of eye glasses can literally have a life changing effect for the recipient.
Tobin Brothers Canberra Funerals assists this program through the placement and promotion of eye glasses collection boxes in our funeral homes and around our communities.
Together with the help of the community, we have sent plenty of eye glasses to the Lions for distribution to communities currently without access to the medical services or the funds required to address vision impairment.
More information about the Lions Recycle for Sight Program is available on the official Lions website.
Tobin Brothers Canberra Funerals were proud to be able to support the Catholic Church, and the communities in and around Canberra, by bringing this transcendent relic to St Francis Xavier College, Florey ACT in 2012.
Tobin Brothers Canberra Funerals provided transport, practical and logistical support in order to safeguard this Catholic treasure. St Francis Xavier, one of the founders of the Jesuit Order, is one of the most significant figures in Catholic history and, at one time, was the Patron Saint of Australia.
More information about the life of this extraordinary man, who became one of the Church's most revered Saints, can be found on the official website.
