Our Partners

Foundation Partner

GJ Gardner Homes is our Foundation Partner, and they've gone to great lengths to support the Big Buddy cause. 

In 2016, Master Franchise owners, Grant and Ellie Porteous, set the wheels in motion to build homes and auction them with the profits going to Big Buddy.  

Over the years the Papakura and Hamilton Franchisees have supported this initiative and raised almost $400,000 for Big Buddy.  

These projects have enabled Big Buddy's growth into South Auckland and the Waikato.
