An Australian charity has defended its decision to produce its merchandise in China.

Legacy, which provides support to Australian families suffering hardship following defence force service, is holding its biggest fundraiser for the year today.

Neil Mitchell was alerted to the fact that wristbands being sold to the public weren’t made here.

Melbourne Legacy CEO Mikaela Stafrace said it was a ‘shame’ but the not-for-profit group had next to no choice.

‘Sadly, this is the situation,’ she said on 3AW Mornings.

‘We did a national tender and there was only one Australian supplier that submitted a quote.

‘Regrettably, the cost was so high we made the decision to produce the items overseas.

‘Because we are not-for-profit, the cost is so relevant.’
