WHAT WE DO 

The Children's Cricket Charity gifts masses of cricket equipment collected through our Kit Recycling Program to cricket-loving children and teenagers in Australia and in developing Caribbean island nations!  

We level the playing field and bring joy through sport by placing bats, balls, pads, helmets, gloves, cricket shoes, playing uniforms and stumps into the hands of cricket-loving children and teenagers who could never afford gear of their own. 

Our ongoing initiative collects quality junior cricket equipment, outgrown or no longer needed by clubs, schools and individuals, and amasses staggering quantities of new and gently loved cricket gear!  

We also facilitate positive social impact cricket coaching sessions for disadvantaged communities. 

 

WE ARE RAISING FUNDS TO HELP DELIVER MASSES OF CRICKET GEAR TO DISADVANTAGED CRICKET-LOVING COMMUNITIES IN NSW & THE CARIBBEAN.  

Christmas cricket care packages are currently being packed to donate to social service organisations throughout New South Wales for the needy children and teenagers they care for.

We are also raising funds to ship a container packed with cricket equipment to the Caribbean for distribution to poverty stricken communities by the end of 2018!

The first 2018 Children's Cricket Charity - Caribbean division container left Sydney for Antigua in early November, 2018.

Projects and Impacts 

2017 saw 53 boxes crammed full of cricket gear  shipped to Antigua & Barbuda, and Barbados. The equipment was presented to shools with little or no cricket equipment. The gratitude from children, principals, government and local cricket bodies is hard to describe such is the shortage of quality equipment in developing Caribbean nations. 

We also proudly support organisations in New South Wales with cricket equipment for the children they care for including; the Community Care Refugee Program, Sydney, Jesuit Social Services, Sydney, Backtrack Youth Work, Armidale, Tharawal Aboriginal Corporation, Airds. 

Antigua & Barbuda    11 primary schools, 4 secondary schools and 4 college teams received cricket kits in 2017. The Government of Antigua & Barbuda through the Ministry of Sports, together with our Antiguan Ambassadors, retired WI cricket legends, Sir Richie Richardson, Ridley Jacobs and Sir Vivian Richards assist in facilitating the work of the Caribbean Children's Cricket Charity. 

Barbados    15 primary schools, 5 secondary schools and 8 special needs units were presented with cricket kits in 2017. The Desmond Haynes Foundation, JPHJ Studios, AccessRUs Services, Variety Barbados. Kensington Oval Management Inc and The Barbados Cricket Association assist in faciliating our work.
