“Sponsoring Holmes is a perfect match for Charlie’s which is all about being 100% honest - and Paul is certainly that,” said Ellis.

“It’s a very exciting development for the company. When we started out four years ago we had nothing and would never thought a deal like this possible.”

Paul Holmes is delighted to be teaming up with Charlie’s saying it’s great to see a New Zealand company stepping in to take up this sponsorship.
