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.

(BBBS) is an organisation making a “big” difference in children and young people’s lives, creating lasting bonds and providing access to opportunities that every child should have, through mentoring.
BBBS has a very necessary mission: to help children and youth realise their potential, build their futures,
and strengthen communities. They believe that every child deserves to “soar and succeed”.
Bowater Hyundai is a cornerstone sponsor and supports Big Brothers Big Sisters because they believe in the values of mentoring and contributing to the community.
VICTORY BOXING, Nelson is doing some wonderful work in the community. Bowater Hyundai & Isuzu are proud to be standing strongly in their corner and helping them get out and about.
Paul Hampton turned from running a classroom to running a boxing gym and has poured his energy into
a project that he always knew would have the potential to change lives.
Several years on, the Victory Boxing gym is going from strength to strength and class sizes are swelling.
“At first it might seem that Victory Boxing is only about boxing, but it’s not really. It’s all about the kids – giving youth a safe and positive place to hang out, a place to get fit and develop healthy lifestyle habits, values and attitudes, and a place to be the best they can be.
