48 Years as a School Crossing Patrol Officer | Irene Reid | Lancashire City Council

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!

Sophisticated Suits | Slinfold Golf and Country Club

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!

Barbara O’Shea’s 52 Years of Service as a School Crossing Patrol | Road Safety Clothing

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.

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!

Secret Santa Surprises

With only a few weeks left till Christmas, we’ve all taken part in Secret Santa ready to exchange gifts and have a few laughs along the way.

This year to mix things up a little, we’ve all been given a letter of the alphabet to buy a present starting with the letter chosen. I’m sure there will be some weird and wonderful ideas in there!

The Importance of Wearing a Workwear Suit

Cassino Mid Blue Suit from Sophisticated Suit Collection

Though it seems Spring is on the horizon, the temperatures aren’t quite there yet and cold weather definitely isn’t taking a hike any time soon. With the cold winds and frosty mornings we are feeling thankful for our workwear suit jackets at the moment. With a few new suits being released in our range this year, it’s got us thinking how important wearing a suit can be and the affect this has on perceptions.

Christmas Jumper Day (Text Santa)

Today we’ve been sporting our bright and colourful Christmas jumpers in aid of the Text Santa charity appeal. Each year businesses and schools alike are encouraged to take part by wearing their best Christmas jumper during the day and making a small contribution to do so. Fundraising activities are also very popular with everything from cake sales to sponsored tasks.

The proceeds from the day are split between three charities – Make A Wish UK, Save the Children and Macmillan Cancer Support, all great charities which many of us can relate to in some way.

This year we’ve run a few fundraising games to push our total fundraising amount up.

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 2016!
