Big Brothers Big Sisters of Taranaki (BBBS) recently held their Annual General Meeting and were able to reflect on another successful year.
Some of the highlights include 14 new matches being made in the last six months which shows the mentoring programme is continuing to grow. They have over 100 volunteer mentors matched with over 100 children from our community. And they've seen 26 of these matches going strong for more than five years now!
We are proud to support an organisation that is making such a real and positive difference in the lives of so many people. "Although BBBS is a Trust and completely dependent on charitable donations and funding, we remain in a healthy position due to the partnership we have with Tamarind," says Paul Shearer, Chairperson BBBS Trust.
