Adult buddies are needed to spend time mentoring Taieri
Presbyterian Support Otago Family Works Buddy Co-ordinator
Fiona Ross says there are children on the Taieri now waiting
for an adult buddy with whom to share time doing anything
from biking to fishing, home baking, farming, or any other
Sharing personal interests and enthusiasm with a child could
be a rewarding experience and make a difference in their
lives, Ms Ross said.
Anyone wanting more information could get it at an
information stand outside Shop on Taieri in Gordon Rd,
Mosgiel, tomorrow and on Friday or contact Ms Ross at
Presbyterian Support on 477 7116.
She said she matched adult volunteers of all ages and
interests with children so they could spend an hour or two
together once a week doing ordinary, everyday things that
encourage positive attitudes, values and behaviour.
