Above and beyond Quota

CROWDS of locals and visitors to the Lower Clarence flocked to Yamba Bowling Club on Saturday for the annual Lower Clarence Quota Club Craft Fair.

Club director Sharman Naylor said the people who operated the 36 stalls at the fair were delighted with the response and she was sure the event would turn a good profit for this year's nominated charity, the Maclean Hospital Auxiliary.

"We hold the fair each year on the October long weekend," Ms Naylor said.

"Each year we select a different organisation to raise money for.

"This year we heard the hospital auxiliary was looking to raise some money for some equipment they want to buy for the hospital."

Ms Naylor said this year's fair had been extremely popular with stallholders as well as the public.

"I couldn't have fitted anyone else in," she said.

"There was a great variety if things to see and do at all the stalls and we had lots of positive comments from locals and visitors who came to see what was going on."

The club will officially donate the money to the hospital auxiliary in the near future.
