THE AFL community is coming together to rally around Rick Bannister, the brother of former player and umpire Jordan, to raise much-needed funds for his medical expenses.
Rick became a quadriplegic after falling from a horse in April, and needs round-the-clock care.
Jordan retired from umpiring AFL football on Wednesday in order to dedicate more time to his family.
The Bannisters will hold a fundraiser on Friday 15 November at Etihad Stadium, with Daryl Braithwaite, Dave Hughes, Andy Maher, Stephen Quartermain, Brendan Fevola and Jason McCartney among the celebrities who have volunteered their time.
