The Toyota Hilux has proved time and time again that it is, that is why the companies that rely on it keep coming back. Click here to learn more about the all new 2016 Toyota Hilux.

Victory Boxing is pleased to have the community in it's corner

Written by Media Manager.

Paul Hampton, the face behind the success at local charitable organisation Victory Boxing, is a really humble, old school kiwi bloke of the finest order. He has put himself out there and poured his energy into a project that he always knew would have the potential to change lives. Several years on, the gym is going from strength to strength, and the class sizes are swelling. 

We took a few minutes to head down to the gym for a quick chat about what the support of local businesses like Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu do for an organisation such as Victory Boxing. 

Victory Boxing, Nelson, New Zealand is doing some wonderful work in the community. Bowater Hyundai & Isuzu are proud to be standing strongly in their corner and helping them get out and about. We caught up with the always inspirational Paul Hampton for a quick chat.
