Bowater Honda CEO Chris Bowater accepts a certificate for a sponsored fencepost from Brook Waimarama Sanctuary's General Manager Hudson Dodd
We bid the team from the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary's Campaign Office a fond farewell last week from the space we donated to them in the top showroom of Bowater Honda. The renovation programme we have in place for the moving of the Honda and Hyundai dealerships has now shifted up a gear now that Bowater Honda has moved into it's new showroom in Achilles Ave. This has freed up the showroom on the corner of Rutherford and Hardy street to begin the transformation into the new Bowater Hyundai showroom.
It was a bittersweet moment as the Brook Sanctuary's General Manager Hudson Dodd presented Bowater Honda CEO Chris Bowater with a certificate for a sponsored fencepost as recognition of the support the Bowater Motor Group has given the organisation over the past year.
The Bowater Motor Group has enjoyed providing a space for the central campaign office of the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary, and this was done with no expectation of any kind. We were genuinely pleased to be able to help this great, local, community focused initiative as they entered the public fundraising phase. By enabling them to have a presence within our highly visible showroom right on one of central Nelson's busiest traffic intersections was a gift we could easily provide this vital environmental project - a project we were very happy to get behind as a community focused organisation.
It is exciting to one day be able to see our name on a fencepost near the main entrance, and something that the up and coming generations of the Bowater family, and all those that work alongside them, will most certainly treasure. It is indeed a wonderful surprise and a great legacy for the company to be honoured with, and we are most grateful for the gift.
