Welcome to my page.

Canterbury

Name: John “The Builder” Bridgman

Title and Company: Chief Executive, Ōtākaro Limited

What is your cooking experience: I know how to drive a BBQ well and can do eggs or a roast dinner but do tend to burn toast.

What would your cooking signature dish be: My wife always says she loves my omelettes.

Why are you cooking to help disadvantaged Canterbury children get a fair start in education: I’ve seen how impactful being able to be confident with schooling has on children of all ages. Having the basics like the right uniform, books, stationery and other basics in your bag can make a big difference to a child’s confidence at school. That can have a very positive impact on how well a child learns.

Ōtākaro Limited's involvement (page creator)

The Christchurch City Mission runs 13 services including the Back to School programme, emergency foodbank, separate men's and women's emergency night shelters, addiction counselling, men's and women's day programmes.
