Heather Walker. A Giant of a community Good Sort.

Heather Walker
Bowater Toyota CEO Tony Bowater presents Heather Walker with her BMG Good Sorts Dinner Voucher at the new home of the Fico Finance Nelson Giants.


The winner of April's BMG Good Sorts, Heather Walker, is a through and through Good Sort. One of those understated individuals that is in it for all of the right reasons - to just help people. A true community minded person that really does not relish being in the spotlight for what she considers as just "doing her bit". All in all we can honestly say that she is a giant in the community.

Heather is also a giant behind the scenes of a group of athletes we have a deep connection with, another of our very own special community interests, the Fico Finance Nelson Giants. As you can see by the giant Giants poster displayed on the back of the new Bowater Toyota Parts Van the team at Bowater Toyota are also pretty passionate about the Giants.
Heather has been a Giant's volunteer for over 5 years and tirelessly works away behind the scenes. She loves the team and is a well respected part of the organisation. She is passionate about basketball and also works a lot with children and adults that have disabilities by bringing basketball into their lives. It is for this that she was nominated by a close member of the community. You can see the nomination article by clicking here.

Heather was a bit surprised to win this award, with her saying when we caught up with her "you just keep doing what you do, and you don't expect these things".
Well Heather, you ought to expect these things sometimes as one good turn deserves another as they say. The Bowater Motor Group are pleased to be able to offer up this recognition to those in our community doing good work, those that dedicate themselves to a cause without desire for praise or financial kickbacks, those people in the background like Heather.
