Proud to behind Operation Restore Hope

Operation Restore Hope is a not-for-profit, non-governmental, non-sectarian charity that surgically repairs cleft lips and palates for underpriviliged children in the Philippines. The charity was conceived by renowned Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Darryl Hodgkinson in 1992.

The condition
A cleft lip and/or palate is a separation of the parts or segments of the lip or roof of the mouth, which are usually joined together during the early weeks in the development of an unborn child. A cleft lip is a separation of the two sides of the lip and often includes the bones of the maxilla and/or the upper gum. A cleft palate is an opening in the roof of the mouth and can vary in severity. A cleft palate occurs when the two sides of the palate do not fuse as the unborn baby develops.

Our purpose
Operation Restore Hope’s purpose is to correct cleft lips and palates, facial disfigurement and other deformities for those who without the donation of services would remain untreated and permanently disadvantaged.

Working with Brendon Mccullum

Brendon McCullum and Serena Kelsey were introduced by a longstanding client and prominent Christchurch Lawyer, Garth Gallaway. They soon realised that they had mutual passions, great tailoring and fine thoroughbreds.

We are very excited to announce that we are working with Brendon and will be re-vamping his formal wardrobe. Brendon will be endorsing our beautiful suits, shirts and jackets by wearing them at public and global sporting events.

We are currently looking into advertising opportunities with Brendon and will be announcing more at a later date, including exciting work with other sports stars and New Zealand actors.

Kelsey Contemporary Tailors has been offering a unique and exclusive service to New Zealands leading executives and lawyers. We are replicating what was a successful business that was run in London which began in the 80’s.  Serena saw that no one in the New Zealand suiting market is offering the level of design, service and quality that she has been achieving for many years

Because of the service we are offering we have experienced huge growth in the last year and have been doing work with many of the larger companies in NZ.

We are very excited about working with Brendon and our new exposure to the sporting world in NZ and Internationally.
