BUSINESS buddy troops engage for Jammies in June

Although it’s only the first week in June, the recent polar blast was a stark reminder of how spine tingling chilly things can get in Auckland.

BUSINESS buddy troops engage for Jammies in June

And while many families flick on the heat pump, throw another log on the fire or pop on the electric blanket, unfortunately many local children go to sleep in damp and freezing cold bedrooms.

We have planned our tactics and rallied the troops for the Jammies in June 2018 campaign.

Right now, BUSINESS buddy is collecting pyjamas for children in the care of Kidz First hospital.

Each year, about 320 children are admitted to Kidz First in January, but that increases to more than 700 in August.

We need you to seize pyjamas for babies and children up to the age of 18 years.

Kidz First often receives lots of pyjamas for younger children and have a need for pyjamas for children aged 12 to 18 years. Some of the children are quite big.

If you would like to donate something snuggly to keep a young Kiwi warm during winter, you can drop off pyjamas to BUSINESS buddy HQ, 35 Allens Road, East Tamaki.

We will make sure they get to Kidz First.
