Sue Benseman, Linda Lucre (in car), Sophia Eagle and Sheryl Wearing (Bowater Honda) getting ready to set off with Daffodils in the Bowater Honda JAZZ AS daffodil yellow Honda Jazz this morning.
This morning Sheryl Wearing from Bowater Honda met up with Sue and Linda from Cancer Society Nelson on the Church Steps to lend them the daffodil yellow Honda Jazz demonstrator we have in our showroom to use for the day.
The Bowater Motor Group have a long history of supporting Cancer Society Nelson with our relationship being very strong over the past 2 years, including projects such as the BMG Mini for Nelson Cancer, the Relay for Life and sponsorship of the centre's primary vehicle. When the topic of Daffodil Day came up recently we asked what we could do to help. Hopefully the very noticable Daffodil Yellow 2014 Honda Jazz will draw attention to the volunteers as they travel the region collecting donations on this very important fund raising day for Cancer Society Nelson.
If you see Linda and her team out today in the Bowater Honda JAZZ AS Jazz make sure you donate! You can be given a bunch of daffodils for a $5 donation, or you can text 'daffodil' to 305 for an instant $3 donation!
Alison McAlpine, chair of Cancer Society Nelson and Linda Lucre (Centre Manager) receiving the cheque from the sale of the BMG Mini Trailer from Tony Bowater.
We recently had the pleasure of presenting a cheque for $1590 to the Cancer Society Nelson as the final stage of the BMG Mini for Nelson Cancer.
This cheque arose from the selling of the custom built trailer that the BMG Mini was carted around on in the promotional phase of the project.
This bought the massive project to an end for us as major sponsors of what has to be regarded as a wonderfully successful fund raising campaign. Overall the very hard working Caffeine Crew team from Wakefield, led by ex-mechanic Bob Croy, has raised over $110,000 for the region.
The Bowater Motor Group has been an instrumental part of this entire project, supplying free of charge all of the parts needed to completely rebuild the 1975 Mini from the ground up. The Parts Department of Bowater Toyota, led by Kieron Reilly, had quite a task sourcing some of these parts, but came through each and every time sourcing sometimes hard to find parts through their extensive network of contacts and associates.
After close to 2 years of hard work, and alot of blood, sweat and tears by all involved with this very ambitious project, the Bowater's team were proud to round off the project with the final donation handover to the representatives of Cancer Society Nelson.
Bowater Hyundai are very proud and excited to be a part of this wonderful event this year, made even more dramatic by the special guest artist Dame Malvina Major.
This is a fun concert of British Proms music with audience participation: foot-stamping, singing, flag-waving and party-popping. Nelson City Brass performs rousing traditional Proms music under British-born composer and conductor Mick Dowrick.
The concert takes place at the Theatre Royal on the Friday 5th & Saturday 6th September at 7.30pm, and a matinee performance on Sunday 7th Sept at 2pm.
It is always so nice to hear positive feedback from customers on the great experience they have had with any one of our busy departments across the region. Good news is good news, and it restores faith in our collective experience and cultural narrative - so when stories like this come to light they are to be celebrated!
Dave Cox from Kapiti had some mechanical issues whilst here on holiday, and was so impressed with how the team at Bowater Toyota handled the whole event that he wrote to tell us.
Not wanting to blow our own trumpets (cue the Al Mapperley Trumpet solo) but we in the media department here at Bowaters feel that this kind of niceness from our valued customers needs to see the light of day.
