The Broken Hill Quota Club (BHQC) is part of Region 14, in NSW, Australia.
The Membership of the BHQC is approx 30 ladies.
In most years our Club raises funds of approx $12,000, of which it is (mostly) distributed locally.
Our main fundraisers are the annual 10 cent Auction and the Cake and Pasty Stall.
Without the continued support of many local individuals and businesses, and the public, our goal of helping out those who need it, would be so much harder. We are grateful for the support we have in Broken Hill.
