QLD Indoor Teams raise over $2K for bushfire relief

Share this article

During the Indoor Festival earlier this year, our Queensland Indoor teams raised $2,650 for bushfire relief through donations from the teams and supporting families.

The Open Team Managers, Lisa and Tony, started the collection within their respective teams after information was received from the Wollongong centre advising that they were putting out a box for spectators and players to donate during the Festival of Indoor Hockey for the Bush Fire Appeal.

The Open teams decided that they would donate $10/player or official and then the message was put out to all the other age group Team Managers to see if they wanted to do the same.

In true #TeamQLD spirit, there was an overwhelming response from every QLD team, who all joined in the giving at their respective tournaments.

The Hockey Queensland teams were mentioned at every closing ceremony of each of the age groups for Indoor for their efforts and collections.

Spectators also donated in the anonymous donation boxes at the venue, so this final #TeamQLD donation figure could be much higher.

Totals all up fundraising:
• $320 – Open Men and Women
• $350 – U21 Men and Women
• $280 – U18 Men and Women
• $300 – U15 Boys and Girls (2 teams each)
• $1000 – U13 Boys and Girls (2 teams each)

Total = $2250

Plus 5 x Play the Whistle Awards – 4 x $100 = $400
