The Cricket Kindness Mission

Between 2016 - 2020, a belief in the power of sport to change lives, saw the Children's Cricket Charity of Australia collect & redistribute the equivalent of seven shipping containers of new & up-cycled cricket gear to disadvantaged cricket-loving communities. 

 

Thousands of children & teenagers throughout Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Trinidad, Sri Lanka, Fiji, The Solomon Islands, Nepal, Sierra Leone & Australia have been given the simple joy of access to equipment to play the great game of cricket! 

 

In mid 2019, our founder & driving force, Tamara Lowe relocated from Sydney to live in London, England & the Children's Cricket Charity voluntarily wound down it's Australian registration as a not for profit charity. 

 

Tamara continues her efforts supporting disadvantaged cricket-loving youngsters under the banner of The Cricket Kindness Project; remaining forever dedicated to addressing to endless need for cricket kit in developing countries around the world.
