The Bendigo branch of Uncle Bob's Club is hoping an influx of new members can save it from folding.
In its 43 years in Bendigo, the club has become the the agent in Bendigo for the Good Friday Appeal and raised more than $1 million dollars along the way.
Uncle Bob's Club Bendigo has also regularly hosted local fundraisers for children-focused health issues.
Bendigo branch president Carol Maher said declining membership has left the club with just 10 loyal members.
"We've got 10 people. We need new talents and new ideas," she said.
"I've been involved nearly 40 years. The people you meet doing barbecues and raffles is amazing but if we don't get members, the club folds.
"It's to the stage where I can't cope with it any more. I get quite emotional about it.
"I'd say five or seven (new members) would be good. Even if we got three, I'd be stoked.
"More hands make light work and once people see the fun we have, we hope they will want to stay."
As a result of the declining membership, the branch has gone from hosting four annual fundraisers to two.
"We just do the (annual) barbecue and the Good Friday Appeal," Ms Maher said. "We used to do the tin shake and the Christmas raffle but now it's just the two and it's a struggle."
Denise Bailie is a new member of Uncle Bob's Club Bendigo. She said the club is ideal for people who work part time or are semi-retired.
"Lots of people have busy lives but here's their opportunity to give back to their community," she said.
"We'd love them to come and help us. It's not a huge commitment.
"As a new member I thought the only focus was the Good Friday Appeal but there heaps of money that goes back into our community for children-focused health issues.
"I didn't realise that when I joined and it's great to know as a Bendigo person."
