Keltic are getting festive!

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!!!

Keltic at the Masquerade ball

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.

Gifts for Rosedene Dogs Home

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.

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!

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.

Stay Cool – Go for Short Sleeve Office Wear!

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!

Keltic Are Getting Silly For A Serious Cause

Once again as a Keltic Tradition we have all dug out our Christmas Jumpers in the Aid of Charity, this year we are raising funds for the Save the Children Charity Appeal.

Save the Children’s Vision is a world in which every child attains the right to survival, protection, development and participation. They Aim to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children, and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.

This year alongside wearing a Christmas Jumper, we have all bought in some cakes and we are having a cake sale, as you can imagine there is a lot of cake, but it’s all for a good cause. We have also run a sweepstake to help increase the total fundraising amount.

Further to the fundraising instead of sending Christmas cards this year, we will be making a charity donation to St Giles Hospice, a local charity that gives specialist care and support free of charge to patients and families who are living with cancer and other illnesses.

At this point we’d like to take the time to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. This year has been one of great developments for us and our customers. We look forward to working with you in 2017!
