Shellharbour product Caitlin Foord has joined the growing list of sportspeople raising funds for Australia's bushfire relief appeal.
Foord will donate the football boots she wore on grand final day when Sydney FC won the 2018/19 W-League title for an auction run by the club.
The 25-year-old's pledge has been made as part of the Sky Blues' Auction and Telethon for Bushfire Affected Families. Sydney FC star Milos Ninkovic is also auctioning his 2016-17 A-League grand final-winning boots.
All donations will go to Rural Aid who are supporting fire affected farmers, their families and communities.
"I hope you can do what you can to support and show those who need it most that the football community is trying to help," Foord said.
"With the drought expected to continue, and the fires rage through parts of Australia, Rural Aid's support for Australian farmers is needed more than ever.
"Head to sydneyfc.com and follow the links to the auction website."
