Big Buddy Big Build

Brand new modern house

Our Foundation partner GJ Gardner Homes' Big Buddy Big Builds has made a huge, positive difference to boys without fathers in their lives.

2023 sees the fourth house built by GJ's, especially for Big Buddy. The profits from these houses have kindly been donated to us.

The 2023 house is a stunning 4-bedroom house in Clarks Beach. The house is being built with the support of a number of local subcontractors and suppliers providing their products and services - some at reduced rates- to deliver a beautiful modern stylish home.

Retail Promotions


Our Principal Partner, Mitre 10 Mega Hamilton has developed a number of promotions to raise funds for Bib Buddy.

The Te Rapa and Ruakura stores have had some amazing promotions with a percentage of profits from selected kids' toys and products being donated to Big Buddy. They also actively support the local Buddies at their annual Big Day Out.

The proceeds raised are helping us match even more boys without a dad in their life to a fabulous Big Buddy

Fantail & Turtle lunches


Fantail and Turtle is a bar eatery on Auckland's North Shore, right in the middle of Takapuna's bustling Goodside at Smales Farm. It is a valued and consistent supporter of the Big Buddy cause.

They have held several fundraiser lunches in support of Big Buddy. Businesses and individuals alike thoroughly enjoy a sumptuous luncheon event for a worthy cause - it's fun, it's social, and everyone knows they are making a positive difference.

Kapura Golf Day

Steve, Guy, Malcom and Alan at Kapura Golf fundraiser 2019

At the end of 2019, members of the Big Big Buddy village were lucky enough to join in a stellar golf day at Wellington's Boulcott's Farm.

This was organised by one of our (now) Principal Partners, Kapura - many will still know them as the Wellington Hospitality Group.

Together, everyone who attended raised $40,000 - not a bad result for a sunny day on the green! This sum is already making a hugely positive difference to boys without fathers in their lives. You can also watch the video on Facebook feed.
