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.
It's time to get Good in the Hood again at Z Rutherford and Z Bowater Motors in High Street Motueka.
The funding is there waiting to be collected. This year each of the Bowater Motors Service Stations will be offering up $4,000 per site worth of funding for 8 local charities to divide based on their share of the publics votes. It is a great platform and we always look forward to this. A chance to give back to the community but more importantly a chance to shine a light on the great work that these charities do for our entire community.
Good in the Hood is back again and Z Rutherford in central Nelson, & Z Bowater Motors in Motueka have information as to how your Charity can apply. $4000 worth of funding per Service Station to local groups.Posted by Bowater Motor Group on Tuesday, 31 January 2017

Every little bit helps - lets give it a decent ending nudge please!
Lets not get all negative Nancy about this topic but at the heart of the matter is the wee fact that Kiwi Men generally are really really terrible at getting to the doctor and getting checked up.
These days we are all too busy.
A few generations ago it was because "she'll be right mate". There is always an excuse.
This MOVEMBER we are wanting to make a change as much as we can in our small way, by having a conversation as much as possible about why we are doing MOVEMBER as an organisation, but also as individuals. For some it is about mates, for others their parents, and for others like David from the Media Dept it's all about the kids. In a rare move David steps infront of the camera to vtalk about what is important to him.
Another video at the end of Movember Foundation New Zealand for the month and this time a message from the media team about the importance of taking responsibility & getting checks done. It's all for family at the end of the day. #bowaters #movember #familyPosted by Bowater Motor Group on Tuesday, 29 November 2016
Supporting the community is more than just donating a cheque here and there when asked. It is all about turning up and actually making a difference. Getting stuck in, rolling up your collective sleeves and doing the hard yards.
This is what MOVEMBER to some degree represents. It is a great idea at the time, and it seems easy as. By the 3rd week there are some new feelings of itchiness accompanied by gentle ribbing from friends and family. At the end of it all though it is all about participating and doing your bit.
Ross Prangnell has just joined the team at Bowater Hyundai as General Sales Manager and was keen as mustard to get behind the 2016 MOVEMBER effort. And as he details in this video, there is more to it than just a funny moustache!
Well that's Movember Foundation New Zealand done and dusted for 2016. Ross the new general sales manager at Bowater Hyundai has this reflection on the importance of taking part. #community #nelson #movemberPosted by Bowater Motor Group on Tuesday, 29 November 2016
