Hunters and Collectors stalwart Jack Howard has released a rock anthem for Carlton as a fundraiser for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal.

He will perform the song, They Know We’re Coming, at tomorrow’s Carlton Family Day at Visy Park.

Downloads of the song are available at Carlton’s website, with proceeds going to the bushfire appeal.

There were also be collection points at the Family Day.

Former club president Richard Pratt, whose Visy company has already donated $250,000, will match every dollar donated at tomorrow’s Family Day.

Like all clubs, the Blues have rallied behind the people most affected by the disaster, and they promise more is to come.

“There is a personal element for the players with Caleb Tiller’s family home being one of the hundreds destroyed by these devastating fires,” Carlton chief executive Greg Swann said.

“The players have rallied around in support and are making significant contributions and are continuing to discuss other ideas on how they can add to this initial support.”
