Quota club’s fundraising efforts support local firies

When the Quota Club aren’t busy fundraising, they are actively supporting other worthy causes, like donating much needed funds to our volunteer firies, according to Ninderry MP Dan Purdie.

Mr Purdie said the Club had a very long and proud history of sharing funds with other deserving not-for-profit organisations and community groups.

“I was pleased to join them recently when they handed over $1,500 to the Valdora-Yandina Creek Rural Fire Brigade, who have earmarked the funding to help with the cost of fitting out their new support vehicle,” Mr Purdie said.

Quota Club of Coolum President Rae Blackney said the group was keen to see their fundraising efforts being put to such good use in the local community.

Valdora Yandina Creek RFB First Officer Scott Brook said the Brigade appreciated the support of the community.

“I would like to thank the ladies of the Quota group for their generous donation and for taking the time to visit our station and learn a little about our brigade,” Mr Brook said.

“Our brigade has had a very busy fire season, fighting fires locally and interstate, and are happy to be able to help out.

“We appreciate the ongoing support of the community and community groups.”
