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.

Video - meeting the charities at Z Rutherford in Nelson.

This year's Z Good in the Hood is looking great, with a fantastic range of charities in the mix at Z Rutherford in central Nelson.
We met up with most of the charities and shot a quick video to get to know the faces behind the voting chambers.

Today the always awesome Z Energy Good in the Hood got underway for the month at Z Rutherford. It's a great chance for us all to get involved with giving back to charities that really deserve it. Last week we got introduced.

The great thing about the Z Good in the Hood is that everybody's vote counts. You come in and make a purchase, you will get a token which gives you a vote. Your vote directly goes into the ratio for that charity for the final cut of the funding pie. The more times you shop, the more votes you will get, and the more votes or tokens a charity gets, the more funding they will receive at the end. It is that simple!

We met up with the charities of this year's 2016 Z Good in the Hood at Z Bowater Motors in High Street Motueka.
It was a great opportunity to take a video and get to know these charities a little better.

Z Bowater Motors is super excited to be running the Z Energy #GoodInTheHood funding promotion again this May. Here is the first glimpse of this years charities in the Motueka round. Good luck #bowaters #bmg #motueka

Brendon Leitch third in Toyota Racing Series after Manfield race win

Bowater Toyota is a proud supporter of Victory Motor Racing - the team behind Brendon Leitch. We have been keenly involved in the Toyota Racing Series over the many seasons, with quite a few of our team joining the crew at Victory on the road as they complete the TRS series to get a taste for what working the pits on a "proper" motor racing circuit is like.  

160215-Leitch-wins

Brendon Leitch of Invercargill has finished third overall in the provisional final points of the 2016 Toyota Racing Series. A sensational win in the Sunday morning race of this weekend’s final round at Manfeild Park in Feilding propelled Leitch into third in the series points and confirmed his standing as the top kiwi.

The race win was the big highlight of the weekend for the young driver while finishing in the top three in the series against top class, race hardened opposition is an outstanding result for a driver who has had just one race outing since last year’s series. The race win was the only one for a kiwi in this year’s series and is the second for Leitch since joining the category.

“I’m pumped, and very happy overall, I’ve got a lot to take away from this year’s series,” said Leitch as the achievement was still sinking in moments after the final race.

Are you are charity looking for funding? You need to be Good in the Hood in 2016

Running a charitable organsation is not cheap! Nor is it as effective when it is done on the cheap. As a community we need to get behind those groups, individuals and organisations looking out for the rest of us, especially those of us that are least able to look after themselves. It is just part of being a good human. 

The Bowater Motor Group are very proud to be able to offer financial support to a wide range of community organisations annually, and the national Z Energy campaign is just another example of how we can give back to a community that has done such a good job of supporting us since we started back in 1945. 

The 2016 Z Good in the Hood Funding round is getting underway again, and we have until the 29th February 2016 to get the charities applications submitted. 

 

#GoodintheHood 2016 funding applications are now open. Apply at z.co.nz/gith3 by 29 Feb

Posted by Z Energy on Monday, 25 January 2016

If you belong to a charity looking for funding, or know of a charity that you would like to support please get in touch and get the application process underway.
It is very simple, and extremely worth the extra funding, as well as the little bit of extra awareness in the community.
