The club has received $14,000 after making a successful application to the NSW Government’s Community Building Partnership (CBP) fund.

The money will be used to create a purpose-built portable barbecue set-up that will make life easier for members when they travel to special events.

Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the club planned to modify a trailer, including fitting it out with three gas barbecues.

“It means Quota can simply hook up the trailer to a vehicle and off they go to their event,” he said.

“Once they get there, it’s a matter of taking the cover off, hooking up to power if need be, and away they go.”

Judy Canon from Quota said members with special skills had been tinkering with the trailer set-up to ensure it was simple, effective and a one-stop shop for what they need.

The CBP forms a partnership between the NSW Government and community organisations to develop projects which could not proceed without funding support.

Applications for the 2018 program will be called for in mid-2018.
