Cricket Kindness Mission

Cricket Kindness started in Australia under the banner of the Children's Cricket Charity. Between 2016 - 2019, a belief in the power of sport to change lives, saw the equivalent of seven shipping containers of new and up-cycled cricket gear collected and redistributed to disadvantaged cricket loving communities. 

 

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

 

With our founder & driving force, Tamara Lowe relocating from Sydney to England in mid 2019, the Children's Cricket Charity has scaled back Sydney operations to kit recycling on a small scale.   

 

We hope to continue using cricket as a humanitarian vehicle to level the playing field extending the hand of generosity.
