Jayson Brunsdon's "Lolita" dress.

An Aussie cricket star and fashion designers have joined forces to help fight cancer.

This year's Daffodil Day - August 24 - will be given a boost with an auction featuring items from Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke and fashion designers Jayson Brunsdon and Arthur Galan.

All money raised from the eBay charity auction, which kicks off on August 14, will go towards the Cancer Council's research and prevention programs and support services.

The aim is to raise $9.2 million nationally.

Clarke, the Cancer Council's ambassador, has donated his signed 2012 West Indies Test Series jersey and autographed bat to help the cause.

Galan's "Goddess" maxi dress and Brunsdon's "Lolita" dress also will be auctioned.

"Each dress reflects hope and inspiration, to support a brighter, cancer-free future," a Daffodil Day spokesperson said.

Galan said he was thrilled to support a worthy cause.

"I know many people who have been affected by cancer and have seen the devastation that it causes," he said.

"Thankfully, I have other friends who have beaten this disease, which gives me hope.

"Any contribution you can make to cancer research is just so important."
