So its officially December and today we are opening door number 6 of our Keltic advent calenders. Well there’s no better way to start the day than with a little bit of chocolate 🙂
And of course it wouldn’t be Christmas if we didn’t partake in the office secret santa! This year we are picking themes out of box and are buying a gift that relates to this theme. We will then lay out all the gifts on the 21st and let the team have a good giggle once there gift is revealed. Don’t worry I will have the camera at the ready!
We hope you are all getting in to the festive mood too. Just remember its only 20 more sleeps until Christmas!!!
So on Friday 1st December it was that time again…the works Christmas party!
This year we went to the Ramada hotel in Wolverhampton for the Masquerade ball. We all got out our suits and gowns and popped on a mask to enjoy a night of lovely food, fab entertainment, drinks and most of all the Keltic teams company.
We danced the night away (some more than others) and had another amazing Christmas party.
We have been getting into the Christmas spirit early here at Keltic and decided we wanted to do something for the dogs at the local rescue centre. Rosedene rescue centre is run only by volunteers and receives no funding at all therefore depend on donations. With the dogs not having a forever home this Christmas we decided to pay a visit and donate some goodies to ensure they have some pressies at Christmas. Buster, a 2 year old staffy, was excited watching us unload the car.
As a team at Keltic we all worked together and brought in old blankets, towels and any doggy goodies we had lying around. We also spent money on getting the dogs lots of food and treats which I’m sure they will be very happy with.
I was lucky enough to take all the donations down to the rescue centre and see how much the donation means to them. As they are limited on volunteers i stayed and walked a dog which was so lovely. Abel, a white Staffordshire bull terrier, was such a pleasure to walk.
The staff at Keltic got into the fundraising for Children in Need by participating in the ‘time to get quackers’ duck race! We also put on a non uniform day.
The fundraising was a success and a lot of fun and we are happy to say we raised a total of £70.50.
As many of you know, at Keltic we like to give awards to school crossing patrol officers who have completed a considerable amount of years in the job. We recently reached out to the Lancashire region, asking for long-standing SCP’s to come forward. We were thrilled to come across Irene Reid, who has been a school crossing patrol officer in Lancashire for an amazing 48 years. Having recently been to present Irene with her award, here are a few extra words of congratulations, both from us and from Irene’s local council!
As a leading supplier of corporate suits, Keltic have a suit to match every requirement. Because we know that choosing between suits can be tricky, we offer three distinct suit collections which we split into three simple categories: durable basic, luxury fashion and best of both. Our luxury fashion collection is entitled The Sophisticated Collection. It is a great collection for higher-end roles as well as for reception staff. One customer who orders from this collection is Slinfold Golf and Country Club. In need of new uniforms for their reception staff, the club recently made a new order with us, and as pictured below they are thrilled with their sophisticated new suits!
As a lead supplier of Road Safety Clothing, we at Keltic like to acknowledge the hard work of school crossing patrols. Specifically, we take time to recognise those SCP’s who have given a significant amount of years to their local community. Today we are looking at the Cheshire West and Chester region, and commending a lady who has completed an impressive length of service, and who has just this year decided to retire.
Phew, it’s getting a bit warm, isn’t it? A bit… too warm? In true British style, many of us pray for this kind of sun all year round, and then when it actually comes we complain that it’s too hot! Saying that, it’s no fun being cooped up in a sticky office in the height of summer. And it’s even less fun when your uniform isn’t made for the heat. Naturally, with the rise in temperatures we’ve seen a rise in enquiries about short sleeve office wear. Following this we thought that we’d run you through a few of our best-selling short sleeve shirts and blouses. They are all designed to keep you and your staff cool as the temperatures soar!
In January we decided to bring back one of our most popular competitions. Our aim was to find the longest-serving school crossing patrols in the country and acknowledge their hard work. Since January we have been inundated with entries from all over the UK. Thrilled with this, we have decided to extend our competition until the end of May so that we can give awards to even more SCP’s! In case you haven’t yet heard about our School Crossing Patrols Competition, here is a recap of what you could win, and how to enter.
As many of you know, Keltic Clothing stock for next day delivery, one of the best resources for Road Safety Education: the Street Feet Road Safety Training Kit. It is a product that we are particularly proud of as we know what a great resource it is for teaching children about road safety. We love it when we get to hear about people’s use of the kit with children in their community. That’s why we were thrilled when recently the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service recently informed us of the great work that they have been doing with one of our kits.
