The Brook Sanctuary Campaign office is open for business

Written by Media Manager.

The new campaign office space nestled into the top level of the Bowater Honda showroom is open for business as the team goes about planning the launch of the "Get behind the fence" campaign.

The Brook Sanctuary team has set about making in roads into the total funds needed to be raised to get the Brook Sanctuary's major project, the 14km long Predator Proof Fence, closer to completion. This fence is at the heart of the campaign to bring nature back to the Nelson region, and with an "inland island' established it is predicted that we could soon all hear again birdsong long since departed from the area. The beauty of this project is that it is all happening just minutes away from the city.

The new Campaign Office in the heart of downtown Nelson has certainly lifted the accessibility of this wonderful local project, and as time goes by, hopefully it makes it a little easier to organise the funds and donations rolling in.

There will of course be an exciting event in the near future to "officially" launch both the new campaign space and also the launch the drive for donations to "Get behind the fence".

Bowater Hyundai announces Spirit of Adventure Trust scholarship

Last week we attended the Nelson College for Girls assembly to announce another exciting, high achiever based scholarship.

Hyundai have got behind the Spirit of Adventure Trust as major sponsors and as a result of this all Hyundai franchises have the opportunity to be involved as well. Bowater Hyundai immediately set about finding out how best to offer this great opportunity to local students, and decided upon establishing a scholarship that met 50% of the total cost of a student's berth on the Spirit of Adventure Trust's training vessel, the tall ship "Spirit of New Zealand".

The school assembly was a great platform to get the girls excited about this wonderful and potentially life changing opportunity, with our Bowater Hyundai Sales Manager presenting a multi media presentation showcasing what the Spirit of New Zealand tallship is all about.

The Brook Sanctuary moves into town.

Written by Media Manager.

You may have noticed some changes going at Bowater Honda's top showroom over the last couple of weeks. The Brook Waimarama Sanctaury Trust have joined with the Bowater Motor Group on Bowater Honda's prime inner city site on the corner of Rutherford & Hardy Streets, creating a brand new Brook Sanctuary Campaign office.

The new campaign office means that the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary Trust will have a much more visible inner city presence, which will hopefully aid them when it comes to raising funds for the "Get behind the Fence" project, as well as generating a higher public awareness for the entire Sanctuary, and the environmental benefits it has for the entire community.

This week it is Toy Library Awareness week, so a perfect time to take a moment to think about how we encourage our young ones to play in today's modern, fast paced world. It is also a perfect time to learn more about the local Toy Library in Motueka.

When the locals were asked the local Toy Library was nominated to be one of the charities in this years Z Bowater Motors Good in the Hood. They are ion the running for a share of $4,000 depending on the outcome of the votes at Z Bowater Motors during all of March. If after reading the following article about the importance of play to our children's well being you think you would like to help, then here is a very easy way. Just head on into Z Bowater Motors on High Street in Motueka, make a purchase of any size (excluding single tobacco purchases) and you can cast your vote for them. The more votes they get the greater the share of the $4,000 they will receive.
