QT Cup tournament fund-raiser
THE QT Cup will now be a fund-rasing vehicle for victims of last week's devastating flood.
The competition has also been forced to make several draw changes with the Ipswich Knights' Bundamba ground Eric Evans Reserve no longer available.
Western Spirit, Ipswich Bulls and Ipswich Knights are the Ipswich-based teams contesting the QT Cup, sponsored by The Queensland Times.
Normally, the event is used to raise money for the Ipswich Hospital Foundation but funds raised from this year's tournament will help those affected by last week's flood.
Tournament organiser James Buchanan said money raised would likely go to an Ipswich State School.
“Schools like Brassall were heavily affected so we are thinking of donating money towards the educational area,” Buchanan said.
“I have spoken with the Ipswich Hospital Foundation and they support the move to help those who lost everything.”
All matches in the tournament will now be played at Sutton Park and an extra date scheduled.
The Ipswich City Bulls won last year’s tournament.
