Cahill's donation to help flood victims
Wednesday 12 January 2011
A prize being offered by Everton and Australia midfielder Tim Cahill to help raise funds for the victims of the Queensland floods sparked a lively bidding war yesterday and is expected to raise thousands of pounds.
Cahill publicised the prize after scoring the second of two goals in the 4-0 Asian Cup win over India on Monday by gesturing to make a phone call.
"I've donated a prize to a telethon and the link is on eBay where two people from anywhere in the world get to bid for a chance to come to Everton and sit in my box to watch a game, have some dinner, watch a training session and get a signed pair of boots and jersey," he said.
