Sport fans are encouraged to get along to Albany's North Harbour Stadium this Saturday night and support relief efforts in the wake of Tuesday's horror earthquake.

The Vodafone Warriors will play the Manly Sea Eagles at 6pm and all profits generated through gate sales will go to relief efforts in the South Island.

Red Cross volunteers will also work their way through the crowd collecting donations.

Mad Butcher and Suburban Newspapers Community Trust Chairman Sir Peter Leitch and his wife Lady Janice have kicked off appeal efforts with a $20,000 cheque.

Both urge Aucklanders to dig deep during the game and its 4pm curtain raiser featuring the Vodafone Junior Warriors and the Auckland Vulcans.

"To see our brothers and sisters in Christchurch going through such unbelievable tragedy is heartbreaking," Sir Peter says.

"We all feel so helpless being so far away up here in the north. We might not be able to roll up our sleeves and pitch in but we can help finance the essential relief operation that will no doubt go on for a long time yet.

Donations can also be made direct to the Red Cross Earthquake Appeal online at www.redcross.org.nz

Gates to Saturday's match open at 3.30pm and tickets can be bought at Ticketek, North Harbour Stadium and selected Mad Butcher outlets
