ANZAC GOLF: Bob James, Terry Rahill, Tony Corney and Andrew Spice get ready for Byron Legacy's Anzac Day charity tournament at Ocean Shores Country Club.

AT this year's Anzac Day Legacy Golf Day golf balls and lawn bowls will be used to buy personal safety alarms for some of the 180 war widows living throughout the shire.

Money raised from the Byron Legacy Anzac Charity Golf & Bowls Day at Ocean Shores Country Club will go towards VitalCall, a medical alert service that connects people to a national response centre with a simple push of a button.

"VitalCall helps our war widows to stay independent and living at home for longer," Byron Legacy Chairman Terry Rahill said.

Sponsored by the Lions Club of Brunswick Heads/Mullumbimby, the Charity Golf & Bowls Day is offering more than $1,200 in prizes, novelty holes, Two-Up, a free barbecue, and an afternoon of entertainment provided by Australian rock legend Mick Buckley.

"Many of our Legatees are ageing so we hope a new generation comes along to help uphold the dedicated services of a charity that puts great emphasis on personal contact," Mr Rahill said.

Far North Legacy Welfare Support Officer Mary Chalmers said the organisation supported 1800 war widows and their dependents living in the Far North Coast.

"These fundraiser enable us to provide valuable advocacy and pension advice, social activities and home support," she said.

Shotgun sessions for the Four Ball Ambrose Tournament start at 7:30am and 12:30pm on Thursday April 25 while mixed social bowls begin at 1:00pm.

Tickets cost $25 per player and can be purchased through The Pro Shop on 6680 1247.

Ocean Shores Country Club is located on Orana Road in Ocean Shores.
