The locals love the Toyota Hilux. It has been the regions top selling new vehicle for a very long time. There is a reason for that. We live in a demanding area, and the vehicles we need to use on the land need to be tough enough to cope. 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. 

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.

It is all about family at the end of the day. Lets stop men dying too young.

Lets not get all negative Nancy about this topic but at the heart of the matter is the wee fact that Kiwi Men generally are really really terrible at getting to the doctor and getting checked up.
These days we are all too busy.
A few generations ago it was because "she'll be right mate". There is always an excuse. 

This MOVEMBER we are wanting to make a change as much as we can in our small way, by having a conversation as much as possible about why we are doing MOVEMBER as an organisation, but also as individuals. For some it is about mates, for others their parents, and for others like David from the Media Dept it's all about the kids. In a rare move David steps infront of the camera to vtalk about what is important to him. 

Another video at the end of Movember Foundation New Zealand for the month and this time a message from the media team about the importance of taking responsibility & getting checks done. It's all for family at the end of the day. #bowaters #movember #family

Ross Prangnell from Bowater Hyundai on making a difference.

Supporting the community is more than just donating a cheque here and there when asked. It is all about turning up and actually making a difference. Getting stuck in, rolling up your collective sleeves and doing the hard yards. 

This is what MOVEMBER to some degree represents. It is a great idea at the time, and it seems easy as. By the 3rd week there are some new feelings of itchiness accompanied by gentle ribbing from friends and family. At the end of it all though it is all about participating and doing your bit. 

Ross Prangnell has just joined the team at Bowater Hyundai as General Sales Manager and was keen as mustard to get behind the 2016 MOVEMBER effort. And as he details in this video, there is more to it than just a funny moustache!

Well that's Movember Foundation New Zealand done and dusted for 2016. Ross the new general sales manager at Bowater Hyundai has this reflection on the importance of taking part. #community #nelson #movember

Keeping it real this MOVEMBER and filling our hearts

At the heart of the whole Movember Movement is the desire to raise funds to be able to contribute to valid and life changing health projects. The chance to have a wider conversation about the need to stop men from dying too young by getting regular checkups. These are all very achievable things. We caught up with Nick D'Evereux the General Manager of Bowater Honda to chat about all of this. 

There is a real nice moment in this video so please watch it! 

The whole purpose of Movember Foundation New Zealand is to raise awareness and funds for men's health to go some way in preventing men from dying too young. That is why we do it at Bowaters. It's not all about the moustaches. Nick from Bowater Honda empties his wallet and fills his heart!

Kicking off another MOVEMBER with the 2016 team getting onboard and looking forward to the hairiness

We are doing it again, and taking it very seriously. Since the last time we MOVEMBERed properly one of our team was struck down by Prostate Cancer, so now it rings true a little more. Lets all get behind it and do it properly!

 

The lads out at Bowater Toyota's Richmond Branch are keen as mustard for this year's Movember Foundation New Zealand fundraiser. Some of them have shaved off facial hair that has been there for a very very long time. #movember #charity #bowaters

It's not just the lads at Bowater Toyota in Richmond stepping up to the plate - many of the others within the Bowater Motor Group are keen to 'stache up.
