Raiders auction for Flood Appeal

The Canberra Raiders and ALLBIDS are doing their bit to help in the Queensland Government's Premier's Flood Relief Appeal, by setting up a charity auction with a number of items donated by Raiders players and staff.

Some of the items up for grabs include a signed and framed Queensland State of Origin jersey donated by David Shillington, Josh Dugan’s signed red boots from the 2010 season, Jarrod Croker’s signed kicking tee, Alan Tongue’s boot signed and framed with photos; and Josh Miller’s signed and framed debut jersey. (NB Items will be posted on www.allbids.com.au as they are collected from players and staff).

The auction is being conducted through Canberra based-online auctioneers ALLBIDS with more information to be found at www.allbids.com.au

Raiders prop and proud Queenslander David Shillington said the players and staff at the Raiders have been touched by the situation in his home state and have decided to donate some of their most prized pieces of memorabilia to help the cause.

“What has happened in Queensland over the past couple of weeks has been terrible to watch unfold so we’ve decided to do our bit by holding this auction to raise money for the cause,” Shillington said.

“Not only will you be donating money to the appeal, you’ll also be able to pick up some rare sports memorabilia which is not usually available.”

Alternatively people wishing to assist can donate goods and ALLBIDS will cash convert and send all funds directly to the Premier's Flood Relief Appeal, which is only able to accept donations of cash.
