Are you ready to rumble? The Fight for Victory gets underway at Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu.

fight 4 victory

This November 5th will see the Trafalgar Centre rumbling to the familiar sound of excitement as the 3rd round of the Victory Boxing annual Fundraiser gets underway.

Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu have stood behind this awesome community event since the start, when our very own Chris Bowater, CEO of Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu, stepped into the ring with the then Mayor of Nelson, Aldo Miccio. It was an inspirational fight and much sweat was left on the canvas as these two stepped up and gave it all that they had.

It was only fitting then that Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu host the launch event for Victory Boxing's Fight for Victory 3 at their central city showroom on the corner of Rutherford and Hardy St on Friday 8th July from 5:30 - 7:30pm.

2016 Good in the Hood has been great for Motueka

Written by Media Manager.

Motueka - you are more than Good in the Hood - you are amazing to the community!

final donations

What a fantastic month of charitable work the good folks of Motueka have particiapted in! First and foremost, a massive thankyou to everyone for all of the hard work. The charities for coming along to our busy Service Station to promote the month of voting, the customers for getting behind the promotion and voting, and Z Energy for putting the whole thing together. It is an absolute pleasure to be able to donate $5,000 to worthy charities in the wider Motueka area!

Check out the video we made of the official handover of the donations to the charities - what an awesome group of people working hard to make our community a better place for everyone! Z Bowater Motors is immensely proud to be a part of helping these charities to further help the greater community.

Z Bowater Motors is making Good in the Hood this 2016 something special

the 2016 Good in the Hood charity groups

It has been another fantastic round of fundraising for the 4 local charities in this years 2016 Z Rutherford Good in the Hood. Not only have these hard working, and very deserving charities been given their share of the $4,000 on offer in this funding round, but they also had the opportunity to get amongst the locals on each of the Saturday's during May with their car washes to raise awareness for their specific causes. 

This is the real beauty of being Good in the Hood - the chance to enable the charities usually working behind the scenes to come forward and talk to everyday locals about what they actually do. 

For most people in our community, they are not really aware of all that these charity groups do, unless they happen to need their services. The more we collectively shine a light on these groups, hopefully the easier a job they have to provide the amazing services that they do. Most of these groups have to raise operational funds themselves, which is a very daunting task, and rely on the kindness of volunteers to deliver the vital support that they do to our community. 

This year we made a short video of handing over the donations and hearing from the representatives of the charities themselves. Awesome!

 

Today we met the 4 charities involved in this year's Z Energy Good in the Hood funding round at Z Rutherford. Huge congratulations to St. John Ambulance in New Zealand, Fostering Kids New Zealand, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nelson and the Iron Duke Sea Scouts. What an awesome result.
