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.

2016 Good in the Hood has been great for Motueka

Written by Media Manager.

Motueka - you are more than Good in the Hood - you are amazing to the community!

final donations

What a fantastic month of charitable work the good folks of Motueka have particiapted in! First and foremost, a massive thankyou to everyone for all of the hard work. The charities for coming along to our busy Service Station to promote the month of voting, the customers for getting behind the promotion and voting, and Z Energy for putting the whole thing together. It is an absolute pleasure to be able to donate $5,000 to worthy charities in the wider Motueka area!

Check out the video we made of the official handover of the donations to the charities - what an awesome group of people working hard to make our community a better place for everyone! Z Bowater Motors is immensely proud to be a part of helping these charities to further help the greater community.

the 2016 Good in the Hood charity groups

It has been another fantastic round of fundraising for the 4 local charities in this years 2016 Z Rutherford Good in the Hood. Not only have these hard working, and very deserving charities been given their share of the $4,000 on offer in this funding round, but they also had the opportunity to get amongst the locals on each of the Saturday's during May with their car washes to raise awareness for their specific causes. 

This is the real beauty of being Good in the Hood - the chance to enable the charities usually working behind the scenes to come forward and talk to everyday locals about what they actually do. 

For most people in our community, they are not really aware of all that these charity groups do, unless they happen to need their services. The more we collectively shine a light on these groups, hopefully the easier a job they have to provide the amazing services that they do. Most of these groups have to raise operational funds themselves, which is a very daunting task, and rely on the kindness of volunteers to deliver the vital support that they do to our community. 

This year we made a short video of handing over the donations and hearing from the representatives of the charities themselves. Awesome!

 

Today we met the 4 charities involved in this year's Z Energy Good in the Hood funding round at Z Rutherford. Huge congratulations to St. John Ambulance in New Zealand, Fostering Kids New Zealand, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Nelson and the Iron Duke Sea Scouts. What an awesome result.

The charities all share a slice of a $4000 funding pie depending on your votes - the more votes a charity gets, the bigger their share of the pie.
