Buy a new car from Bowater Hyundai or Bowater Isuzu and you could help the Victory Boxing Gym as well.

150512-victory-cashdonationPaul Hampton (Victory Boxing Programme Director), Chris Bowater (CEO Bowater Hyundai & Bowater Isuzu) with Victory Boxing Charitable Trust Chairman and Gibbons Holdings Chief Executive Scott Gibbons.Chris Bowater, CEO of Bowater Hyundai and Bowater Isuzu, has got quite a soft spot for the Victory Boxing Charitable Trust, and all of the life changing work it does with youth in our community.

He first put his hand up and step into the ring in the inagural Fight 4 Victory Boxing Extravaganza back in 2013, and is now offering anyone who purchases any vehicle from Bowater Hyundai or Bowater Isuzu the chance to give back to Victory Boxing by donating $300 from the sale to the gym.

The idea is really simple. All you have to do is head along to Victory Boxing in Vanguard Street and pick up a voucher to take to Bowater Hyundai or Bowater Isuzu on the corner of Rutherford and Hardy Street's. Once you have found the car you are looking for, present the voucher to the sales team, sort out the purchase and Chris Bowater will write a cheque out to the Victory Boxing Charitable Trust that runs the gym to the tune of $300! 

He has already written one cheque out in the first days of the partnership after Gibbons Holdings bought a car from him and then bought the voucher along to help the gym. 

"This is a genuine thing. We give $300 above anything else because I love what they are doing" says Chris.

"If you are looking for a car, and like what Victory Boxing are doing, you'll at least come in the door and have a look. You want to make sure that you are getting the best deal, and that it fits your needs, but if we can do a deal that works best for the customer, it will also benefit Victory Boxing" he says.

"Hopefully it will all add up over the year. I would love to give thousands of dollars away!"

Victory Boxing Programme Director, Paul Hampton, says the support from Chris, and Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu, has always been strong, and he is delighted with the new concept. 

"Obviously we really appreciate our relationship with Chris and the team, and we are really excited that they have decided to extend it. Donations like this are fantastic for us. We have a lot of running costs, and with so many kids now the upkeep on gear is a big thing that draws money."

Chris says that there is no time limit on the offer, so people can take their time to find the best car for them and still take advantage of the deal.

Meet the Bowater Hyundai Team

Daryl Pritchard. A depth of experience & the voice of reason.

Daryl has been in the car industry for a long time, ever since he started as an apprentice mechanic for the Post Office's Workshop in Wellington, where he grew up.

We are fortunate to have him, and all of his varied vehicle industry experience, with us at Bowater Hyundai since 2010. He has seen the Hyundai brand go from strength to strength and has a depth of technical knowledge of the evolution of the range of vehicles. 

Daryl lives in Stoke with his wife, they have four grown children living as far afield as Wellington and Sydney. A proud supporter of the Hurricanes and the Lions, Daryl maintains his strong connection to the city he grew up in.

He is a strong believer in the Bowater Motor Group philosophy of giving back to the community and thrives on "the strong focus of ethical business within the company". As such Daryl is a strong advocate for the special relationships that Bowater Hyundai has built with community partners such as Big Brothers Big Sisters and Victory Boxing.

Daryl is an enthusiastic fisherman and says his lack of results has failed to deter him from his enthusiasm. Click here to contact Daryl.
