The Edgbaston #Toys4Birmingham donation centre is open 11am to 3pm on Thursday 3 December, Thursday 10 December and Saturday 12 December.
Here Club players, staff, Cricketeers and supporters of charities Thrive Together Birmingham and the Birmingham PlayCare Network will manage donations of new and nearly new toys, which will be distributed to children for Christmas Day.
Ravi Masih, Head of Community Engagement at Warwickshire County Cricket Club and Lead of the Edgbaston Foundation, said: “We’re very excited to launch the #Toys4Birmingham campaign and open our toy donation centre tomorrow to support and bring spirit to some of the most vulnerable children in Birmingham.
“In addition to the opportunity to call in at Edgbaston, orders can also be made online and delivered direct to Edgbaston and it’s also possible to make a financial donation, which will subsequently used to provide more toys for the children in needs.”Ravi Masih, Head of Community Engagement at Warwickshire County Cricket Club and Lead of the Edgbaston Foundation
