Sam, a lawyer, works primarily as a Crown prosecutor in Auckland. In that role he sees first hand the effect that a lack of positive role models can have on peoples’ lives.
Sam became involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters because in his view bringing this world leading mentoring programme to Auckland is long-overdue.
He believes that all children, and indeed all of us, can benefit from a mentor and the benefits that the Big Brothers Big Sisters programme offers to children and their communities are significant.
Bridget is a Senior Marketer, with experience in a wide range of listed and privately owned companies in New Zealand. She is currently at Genesis, heading up the marketing team in the Business category.
Her family has a charitable trust that provides educational opportunities to underprivileged children in Namibia; and she sees her involvement with BBBS as the perfect opportunity to make a difference to children in Auckland, her hometown.
