It is coming up to the summer holidays and i am sure most of you have your holidays booked up and are looking forward to a break.
We hope you all have a great time!!!
Another bank holiday approaches us allowing us to soak up any sunshine we may get and enjoy an extended weekend. The holiday was formally known as whitsun and is another opportunity to celebrate the new life in spring.
We hope that you all have a great weekend.
Yes! Summer is just around the corner! Many of us are starting to think about our summer wardrobe. Perhaps it’s time to also start thinking about your staff’s summer wardrobe. It’s important that your staff are comfortable in their work attire. To ensure that they stay cool this summer, why not take a look at our summer range of road safety clothing. Here’s a little taster of the kind of summer wear that our road safety department offer.
It’s Road Safety Week this week, and to celebrate we are offering a discount on our Street Feet Kits. These road safety education kits are hugely popular when it comes to training school children in road safety. Read a little more about them here, and if you like what you hear, take advantage of our limited discount today!
Early May bank holiday is approaching and this marks the official start of the spring season. As we look forward to some sunnier weather make sure you and your team are sporting the spring fashions with Keltic’s uniform shirts and blouses!
It is the national Day for England in which we can all hold our flags up and dig into a deluxe feast (as they did in the 1415 when the day was first declared).
We hope you all enjoy the day and any activities you may be participating in.
School Crossing Patrols play a vital role in school children’s safety. Helping children to navigate roads, they ensure that they are free from danger on their way into school. At Keltic we are really appreciative of the fantastic job that SCP’s do, and we think that it’s only right that we should, now and again, give something back. Sandy Flamson from Whitwick in Leicestershire has been a patrol for an amazing forty-two years. We therefore decided to present her with a prize for being the longest serving patrol in her region.
Forty-two years of service is commendable in any profession, but for one that helps the community so much, it’s really amazing. We were therefore delighted to travel to Leicester and present Sandy with a badge and champagne for her brilliant work. We also thought it right to give some cupcakes and gingerbread men to her fellow patrols!
Why Sandy Loves Being an SCP
From speaking to Sandy, it was clear that this was somebody who loves their job. When we asked her why, Sandy said the following:
“I love my job because I’m helping children to be safe and I feel like I’m making a worthwhile contribution to the community. I enjoy being out in the fresh air, meeting new people and watching the children grow up. In some cases I’m now crossing their children!”
Wholly appreciated by children, parents and teachers alike Sandy continues to contribute to the community and do a fantastic job as a SCP. Sandy is a lovely lady and we were thrilled to be a part of her day!
Today in the Keltic office we’ve been raising money for charity. As we do every year we have all been busying ourselves with various fundraising activities for Red Nose Day. Here is what we’ve been up to! Continue reading
We recently held a competition to find the longest serving patrol in each region of the UK. The prize for the winner in each region was a bottle of champagne and a length of service badge. Also, one of our amazing STOP cupcakes for each of our winner’s fellow SCP’s.
East Yorkshire’s Winner
Margaret Cattle from Cottingham in East Yorkshire started as a patrol in 1972 clocking up an amazing 43 years service. It was a pleasure to go up and present the award to Margaret and give her some well earned recognition for her hard work and dedication.
Watch This Space SCP’s!
We look forward to presenting the rest of our awards in due course. Check back soon to see who the winner is in your area!
At Keltic we try to do our bit for charity. That’s why recently when we had some stock garments which were no longer required, rather than selling it off at a discounted rate, we donated it. In the coming months St Giles Hospice will be selling our van-load of garments across their shops and hopefully getting some real value out of it.
Response from St Giles Hospice
After we dropped off the leftover stock we received a lovely message from Anna Eddleston, the marketing co-ordinator at St Giles Hospice. She said the following:
“St Giles Hospice would like to say a big thank you to Keltic Clothing for their generous donation of shirts, trousers, shoes and work wear. These will be sold across our 31 charity shops; our shops help St Giles raise the vital funds needed to deliver high-quality care to local people living with cancer and other serious illnesses, and so this donation will be contributing to helping us continue such work”
Can You Donate to this Fantastic Charity?
It was such a great pleasure to work with St Giles Hospice and to know the donation would provide help to many people. We hope to be able to do the same soon. If you have anything, big or small, that you think that you might want to donate, then we’d really recommend this excellent charity. You can find their website here. And, as always, you can find ours here.
