WHAT WE DO 

The Children's Cricket Charity collects huge quantities of new and gently loved cricket equipment. We place 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.  

 

WHY ARE WE RAISING FUNDS

We are fundraising to send massive shipment of cricket equipment to  cricket-loving communities in developing Caribbean nations, and in NSW.  Your donation assists with;

  • COLLECTION INITIATIVES
  • PACKING & STORAGE
  • FREIGHT & TRANSPORT
  • LOCAL DELVIERY                                                                  

 

OUR INSPIRATION - LEVELLING THE PLAYING FIELD

We strive to give ecomically disadvantaged children the simple joy of access to cricket gear.  

 

HOW WE DO IT

2017 saw delivery of the inaugural Children's Cricket Charity cricket goodwill shipments to the developing Caribbean region. In total, 53 boxes crammed full of cricket gear were shipped to Antigua & Barbuda, and Barbados. 

On arrival, the equipment is packed into kit bags containing bats, pads, gloves, balls, helmets, playing uniforms and wickets and presented to shools identified as having 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 the Community Care Refugee Program and Jesuit Social Service in SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA with donations of cricket equipment for the children they care for. 

 

RECENT PROJECTS and IMPACTS:
