Sports fans throughout the country have thrown their support behind a trust to help young sportspeople from low income backgrounds get a start.

The trust is named in honour of Rob Guildford, the father of All Black Zac Guildford, who died last year of a heart attack shortly after watching his son star in New Zealand's under-20s World Cup victory against England.

His brother Daren Guildford told Waatea News that the support coming in for Saturday night's charity dinner and auction in Napier is overwhelming.
