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.
This year's Z Good in the Hood is looking great, with a fantastic range of charities in the mix at Z Rutherford in central Nelson.
We met up with most of the charities and shot a quick video to get to know the faces behind the voting chambers.
Today the always awesome Z Energy Good in the Hood got underway for the month at Z Rutherford. It's a great chance for us all to get involved with giving back to charities that really deserve it. Last week we got introduced.Posted by Bowater Motor Group on Sunday, 1 May 2016
The great thing about the Z Good in the Hood is that everybody's vote counts. You come in and make a purchase, you will get a token which gives you a vote. Your vote directly goes into the ratio for that charity for the final cut of the funding pie. The more times you shop, the more votes you will get, and the more votes or tokens a charity gets, the more funding they will receive at the end. It is that simple!
We met up with the charities of this year's 2016 Z Good in the Hood at Z Bowater Motors in High Street Motueka.
It was a great opportunity to take a video and get to know these charities a little better.
Z Bowater Motors is super excited to be running the Z Energy #GoodInTheHood funding promotion again this May. Here is the first glimpse of this years charities in the Motueka round. Good luck #bowaters #bmg #motuekaPosted by Bowater Motor Group on Wednesday, 27 April 2016
Stay tuned to this section of our website for more information on the charities specifically as the month progresses.
