“It will be held in trust until they require it for any resources they need,” Mrs Shanks said. 

In 2017/2018 the club raised about $60,000 for more than 15 international and community causes. 

Some of the beneficiaries of the club’s fundraising attended its 46th annual changeover this month including the Smith Family which received $1200 to buy educational resources for children. 

The club, which lobbied for the integrated cancer centre, has welcomed new president Pam Sharkey.
