Ever since our humble beginnings in downtown Nelson in 1945 the Bowater Motor Group has been very focused on community involvement. We believe that you are only ever as successful as the support that you can give back. It is with this philosophy that we continue to be as involved as we can be in the wider Nelson / Tasman community.
This section of the website houses stories, links and content from a collective of organisations and events that we are involved with or support through sponsorship or partnerships.
The menu to the right has got comprehensive articles from those events, organisations and charities that we regularly involved with, click on the menu items to read more, or scroll down this page to keep up with events as they unfold.
If you think you have an event, organisation or group that would benefit from our community interest feel free to contact us.
Good in the Hood is back for May at Z Rutherford and making your vote count is super easy. Every purchase, excluding tobacco, gets you a token. Tokens go into the voting display by the front door on your way out of the store. Easy as.
Check out the video at Z Rutherford where Tracey runs through making sure your vote counts (make sure you click on that HD setting - it makes video on Facebook so much better)

Paul Hampton, the face behind the success at local charitable organisation Victory Boxing, is a really humble, old school kiwi bloke of the finest order. He has put himself out there and poured his energy into a project that he always knew would have the potential to change lives. Several years on, the gym is going from strength to strength, and the class sizes are swelling.
We took a few minutes to head down to the gym for a quick chat about what the support of local businesses like Bowater Hyundai and Isuzu do for an organisation such as Victory Boxing.
Victory Boxing, Nelson, New Zealand is doing some wonderful work in the community. Bowater Hyundai & Isuzu are proud to be standing strongly in their corner and helping them get out and about. We caught up with the always inspirational Paul Hampton for a quick chat.Posted by Bowater Motor Group on Thursday, 9 February 2017
