Successful day as Bowater Honda plants 500 trees

It was a massive day for conservation in Nelson on Thursday as the team from Bowater Honda got together with Mel and her team from Trees That Count to plant out a new section of natives on Lindy Kelly's land at the Kelly's Bush Conservation Forest.

The team from Bowater Honda were proud to be on the hill at The Kelly Bush Project with Trees That Count planting 500 of the 30,000 trees that Honda New Zealand will plant this year celebrating 30 years of motoring excitement in NZ. The team will sleep well tonight!

 Honda New Zealand have embarked on a lofty ambition to plant 30,000 trees this year to celebrate their 30 years of motoring excellence in our country. Bowater Honda were certainly very honoured to be a part of this great initiative and jumped at the chance to help on the Kelly's Bush Conservation Project. 

Victory Boxing continues to punch above it's weight.

We stopped by Victory Boxing to have a catch up and talk about the importance of community. 
Paul Hampton and the team are doing amazing work, and we help support them to do this. 

Take a minute to watch this short video and become inspired!

It’s good to remember the strength of community. Organisations such as Victory Boxing, Nelson, New Zealand work hard to make a difference, giving those needing it a new focus, helping our elderly to keep moving and teaching at risk kids the importance of belonging. We are proud to be able to stand behind people like Paul and his team as they make a difference.
