Good in the hood

The Bowater Motor Group are very pleased to be a part of the nationwide Z Energy "Good in the Hood" project to help support our local community through the support of local charity groups.
Z Bowater Motors, on High Street in Motueka, and Z Rutherford in Nelson City are both giving away $5,000 per funding round, with 4 lucky local charity groups recieving $4,000 worth of funding, to be divided up according to your votes whenever this promotion is on. The additional $1,000 per Z station is there for the Bowater Motor Group to fund an additional charity during the course of the year. We have had great responses from both locals and travellers alike during our 2013. 2014, 2015 and 2016 campaigns, with the charities very happy to be a part of it all. It's on again this May 2017. Lets get behind it.

The end results for the 2014 Z Good in the Hood - Fred Wassell from Motueka St John's, Senior Constable Grant Heney from the Motueka Police representing the Motueka Search & Rescue, Donna Smith from Victim Support, Linda Fickling from Plunket and Matt Morris, Site Manager Z Bowater Motors.


We must firstly thank the community of Motueka for really getting behind the 2014 Z Good in the Hood funding project this year. We had a lot of people coming in, spending their $20 during March and voting for their favourite charity, and by the end of the month the voting display was very full. This is just awesome as it indicates that the community spirit is definitely alive and well in Motueka!

The community groups standing to gain by receiving the Z Energy funding must have been very excited to see their section of the display filling up, realising that every token in their portion of the display represented another portion of funding to help their charity continue to do the good work that it does in the local Motueka community.

Last week we caught up with the charities to present them with their cheques, and have a quick catch up as to what some of them intended to do with their extra funding.

 Good in the Hood

Z Bowater Motors are firm believers in helping those that help the local Motueka community, and have a great reason for you to visit them often this month. Each and every time you spend $20 or more (excluding tobacco products) you get the chance to cast your vote for your favourite local charity.

The Z Energy "Good in the Hood" promotion is on again for the entire month of March, and at the end of it, the 4 local charities will divide up the $4,000 depending solely on the percentage of votes they received during that time. So who are we all voting for this time around?

The Bowater Motor Group are very pleased to be able to get behind another year's Z Good in the Hood funding of local charities, as nominated by our local community.

This year the 4 charities are up for their share of $4,000, with $1,000 being left behind in the pot to be distributed during 2014 to another local charity / community project that the team here at Z Bowater Motors feels passionate about.

Last week the 4 charities were announced as follows: Plunket Motueka, Motueka Search & Rescue, Motueka St John,and Victim Support Motueka.

These charities are now in line to receive a share of the $4,000 and need all of their supporters to come in during March and vote for them! 

For those reading this that dont know who or what these charities do in our community read on as we got a chance for a quick chat during the photoshoot.

It is time again to be all "Good in the Hood" and give away some money

 Good in the Hood

The Bowater Motor Group are super excited to be able to be a part of yet another round of excellent community funding through the Z Energy "Good in the Hood" funding programme.

Bowater Z Motors of Motueka are a community service station through and through. The BMG site on High Street in the centre of town has had a service station on that same spot for generations. The changeover into a Z Station brought with it a new focus back into the community from the Fuel provider, with Z Energy committed to serving the local communities it fuelled.

Part of this new concept of giving back was the establishment of the Z "Good in the Hood" campaign. This involves 4 charities being nominated to receive their share of $4,000 - all allocated via the voting process. If one charity gets 80% of the overall votes from the public, they will receive 80% of the $4,000. Simple as that.

Good on them we say, and we are very excited to be able to hand over this funding on their behalf.

This year for the early 2014 Z Good in the Hood campaign the groups nominated to receive their share of the $4,000 funding pot have just been announced.
