Just dropping you a note to pass on our thanks to the children from Amesbury School who created Long and Daniel, the two buddies that spent the day at Barnardos New Zealand. Long was my Buddy and Daniel was the Buddy of Jeff Sanders, our Chief Executive.
We really enjoyed reading the stories on the back of our buddies which told us all about their lives, what makes them happy and the things that are important to them.
Daniel and Long went to a meeting where they met up with two other buddies, joined the staff quiz, helped out at reception, answered calls on our IT helpdesk, learned all about the donations we get from all over New Zealand, and finally they sat in on a meeting about our new computer system before it was time to go home.
I've attached some pictures of the things they did, and hope you can share them with the children who created them.
