Precious legacies

Throughout our history, Wesley Mission Queensland has received diverse and precious legacies that have helped us to care for the community. Here, we honour and pay respect to the legacies from the past 100 years.

 

These generous gifts have helped us establish buildings, facilities and spaces, and provide ongoing care and support to those in need. 

Mrs Raymont’s gift helped build our beautiful Sanctuary. Her gift has greatly enriched the lives of our residents, and those who have been privileged to join in worship.
The Cooper legacy consisted of shares in a skin and hide business that equated to approximately £17,000. Their gift is honoured by the naming of Cooper House.
