New Zealand: Did you know James & Wells employees were involved in Waikato's 'Buddy Day' awareness for child abuse programme?
Last Updated: 29 November 2011

Extra (cardboard) people could be found in the James & Wells office last Friday, when a number of employees adopted a 'Buddy' for the day.

The buddy's were involved with day to day activities, including attending client meetings and going out for lunch.

The 'Buddy Day' programme was designed to raise awareness for child abuse. The campaign saw 180 life-sized cardboard children on display around Hamilton. The cardboard cut outs represented 10% of the 1800 child abuse cases reported in the Waikato region last year.

The Buddy Day organisers said "We love James & Wells! You guys took the most Buddies of any company."
