Kicking on for charity

Having raised more than $80,000 over the past decade, the Hampton Rovers footballers are again joining in the Red Shield Doorknock appeal in 2011.

On Sunday about 250 children and parents from the Bayside club will walk the streets of Hampton to raise money for the Salvation Army.

Brent Mirabito, now 20, took part in the first Rovers’ fundraiser 11 years ago. He is part of the doorknock again this year, coordinating walkers around the suburb.

‘‘A bit of my time to help out others is very worthwhile,’’ he said. ‘‘It is good for the community to help raise money for the Salvos.’’

Older Rovers players from the senior section of the club tin-rattle the Hampton intersections, while youngsters and their parents knock on doors asking for donations.

Red Shield proceeds go towards Salvation Army services including homelessness, family crisis provisions, disaster relief and drug, alcohol and gambling rehabilitation.

It is being run this weekend all across the country. Further details:
