Ever since our humble beginnings in downtown Nelson in 1945 the Bowater Motor Group has been very focused on community involvement. We believe that you are only ever as successful as the support that you can give back. It is with this philosophy that we continue to be as involved as we can be in the wider Nelson / Tasman community.
This section of the website houses stories, links and content from a collective of organisations and events that we are involved with or support through sponsorship or partnerships.
The menu to the right has got comprehensive articles from those events, organisations and charities that we regularly involved with, click on the menu items to read more, or scroll down this page to keep up with events as they unfold.
If you think you have an event, organisation or group that would benefit from our community interest feel free to contact us.

Book your seats now for Le Vent du Nord on Friday 12th October, 8.30pm at the TSB Bank Mainstage st Founders Park - this is going to be exactly the right way to open this years Arts Festival, and by all accounts, one show you will remember for a very long time!
Today is the annual SPCA Cupcake Day. A day when all branches of the SPCA collectively make and sell cupcakes across the country.
The SPCA is entirely self funded, so days like this one are very important.
If you have missed the opportunity to buy a cupcake on the street, or at one of the stalls in the supermarkets because they sold out due to their extreme deliciousness, you can still donate to them by clicking here. You may not get a cupcake but you will most certainly get a warm feeling for helping out a charity that does great work in the community.
With cupcake day almost upon us, the Nelson SPCA has been busy baking up a storm at the NMIT commercial kitchens to fill those orders!
They had a great turnout by volunteers today to help bake the trays and trays of delicious cupcakes needed. You can visit their facebook page here to see how you can be involved tomorrow, or keep reading to see more of the action!
The Nelson SPCA Cupcake Day is now just a week away. The biggest and easiest thing you can do to help the SPCA out is to just buy some cupcakes!
MMMMMmmmmm. Nomnomnom. Licoricey cupcakes.
The cupcakes will be available from Cupcake 3 stalls in Nelson and Richmond, and from stalls at New World and Countdown in Nelson. They have got some commercial sponsorship from Brumbies on Hardy Street, who have come up with some excellent cupcakes to get you all thinking!
