Complete Cricket are excited to share the news of our collaboration with The Edgbaston Foundation, Thrive Together Birmingham & The Birmingham PlayCare Network, to collect gifts for some of the most vulnerable children & young people in Birmingham this Christmas. 2020 has been a year which has affected us all, but many families have been hit harder than ever before. Please see the information below for how you can get involved in this amazing project:

How can I get involved?

We are looking for unwrapped, new or nearly new toys, crafts and books to be donated to support families across Birmingham this Christmas. 

Suggested gift items include:

  • Gifts for both boys and girls aged 0-16
  • Children’s books
  • Board games (complete)
  • Craft materials (pens, paper, pencils, crayons, sharpeners, craft kits)
  • Soft toys or teddies
  • Action figures/cars (we are unable to accept electronic or battery operated gifts)
  • Children’s sports accessories

How to donate?

Please email to arrange a drop off/collection

Can I donate money instead?

Money can also be donated online, which will go directly towards buying gifts for vulnerable children and young people whose families might not otherwise be able to afford Christmas presents this year.

How will the gifts be distributed?

All gifts collected will be distributed through the work of Birmingham Play Care Network, Birmingham Forward Steps and other partners who work directly with vulnerable families.
