The Bowater Motor Group are no longer a part of the nationwide Z Energy "Good in the Hood" project, but we have decided to leave this section of our website here to celebrate the many years from 2013 through to 2018 when we helped many community groups.

We previously held two Z Energy sites, on High Street in Motueka, and Z Rutherford in Nelson City, both giving away $4,000 per funding round, with 4 lucky local charity groups recieving a share of the $4,000 worth of funding. We had great responses from both locals and travellers alike during our campaigns from 2013 - 2018, with the charities very happy to be a part of it all. Good luck to all of those charities we supported, it was a pleasure working with you all during these campaigns.

For the sake of archives, please enjoy some of the videos and articles contained within this section.

Play is the Way during Toy Library Awareness week.

 The Toy Library

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.

Voting is easy, and every vote counts when it comes to being Good in the Hood.

This March Z Bowater Motors on High Street in Motueka are all about being Good in the Hood again. It is all about you helping us find out what you think is important in our local community.

$4,000 is up for grabs to be shared out amongst the 4 local charities. Every vote counts, and every purchase, big or small, enables you to make a vote. The more votes, the greater the share of the $4,000 your favourite charity gets.

Over the coming days we will get to know each of the 4 charities that you can vote towards getting their share of the $4,000 funding.

Voting is easy, just pop into Z Bowater Motors on High Street and cast your vote in the large box on your way out of the door.

Z Bowater Motors is Good in the Hood again, and giving away $5,000 to the locals

Just like the banner says, it is time for us to be all "Good In The Hood"!

Z Bowater Motors in Motueka are giving away more money this year, $5,000 in fact, to deserving local charities. This is the second time in 12 months that we have been involved in this amazing nationwide Z initiative, and a wonderful opportunity for us all to get stuck in and give back to those that do such a great job in our local community. The best thing is that you don't really have to do anything special, just drop a token in a box on your way out of the Z Bowater Motors Service Station on High Street. Every vote counts, and all 4 charities selected will get a portion of the funding.

Over 4000 applications for the programme were received nationwide in November, and today we are very pleased to be able to publicly announce the following local charities as those successful in this summers local Motueka "Good in the Hood" funding round:

  • Motueka Riding for the Disabled
  • Whenua Iti Outdoors
  • Motueka District Toy Library
  • Victim Support Motueka

These 4 hard working local charities will be up for their share of the funding depending on the results of the voting instore at Z Bowater Motors over the month of March.
How the funding is split up depends entirely on you and your votes.
