OUR EPIC CRICKET KINDNESS MISSION! 

The Children's Cricket Charity donates masses of cricket equipment and clothing to cricket-loving communities in Australia and the developing Caribbean. In 2019, we hope to expand our goodwill to Sri Lanka too!  

The Children's Cricket Charity levels the playing field by placing bats, balls, pads, helmets, gloves, stumps, cricket shoes and playing uniforms into the hands of cricket-loving children and teenagers who could never afford gear of their own. 

Our Kit Recycling initiative has collected staggering quantities of new and gently loved cricket gear over the past three years!

WE ARE FUNDRAISING TO FACILITATE DISTRIBUTION & DELIVERY OF STOCKPILED CRICKET GEAR AMMASSED THROUGH CHILDREN'S CRICKET CHARITY COLLECTION INITIATIVES.  

We proudly provide ongoing support in the form of junior cricket equipment donations to organisations in New South Wales including;

Community Care Refugee Program, SYDNEY - Chistmas cricket care packages are donated every year to over a hundred chidlren of Sri Lankan refugees aged between 4 and 18 yrs.
