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.
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!Posted by Bowater Motor Group on Tuesday, 8 November 2016
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 #bowatersPosted by Bowater Motor Group on Tuesday, 1 November 2016
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.
This year the Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce are doing things a little differently.
This year Bowater Honda are coming to the party and providing a brand new, head turning, heart thumping 2016 Honda Civic for the Supreme Winner to have at their disposal for 3 months.
It is guaranteed to be a big year for the 2016 Nelson Pine Industries Chamber of Commerce Supreme Award Winners. The addition of a fully signwritten 2016 Honda Civic to use for 3 months is certainly going to get their business noticed on the street's of our region. A very stylish mobile billboard is a valuable asset in anyone's language!
The team from the Nelson Tasman Chamber of Commerce stopped by to make this great video with Nick from Bowater Honda explaining the awesomeness of the additional prize.
There’s never been a better year to enter our annual Business Awards. Check out the prize that Bowater Honda is kindly sponsoring for the 2016 Nelson Pine Industries Chamber of Commerce Business Awards Supreme Winner.

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.
