Children looking for buddies

Adult buddies are needed to spend time mentoring Taieri children.

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 hobby.

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.
