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!

New Mens Funeral Wear Overcoat

Following on from our announcement of the Ladies Funeral Overcoat, we’re thrilled to introduce the brand new Men’s Funeral Overcoat. This is a garment that we are especially pleased with. Pictured here alongside the ladies overcoat, the shape is simple yet stylish and will perfectly compliment your uniform look.

Funeral Overcoat: Try Before You Buy

We know how frustrating it can be to purchase an item which, when you receive it, just isn’t quite right. Sure, in the brochure, the garments all look great on the models, but different styles can suit different people. That’s why we always offer ‘Try Before You Buy’. We always keep a large quantity of stock and a wide range of sizes available so that we can send out samples very quickly. Let us know what sizes you’d like to try and you’ll receive them within 3-5 working days. We offer free collections on samples, unless of course you love the overcoat so much you wish to purchase it!

Why Not Give it a Go

The process is simple, just give one of our friendly sales advisors a call on 08450 66 66 99. Alternatively make an online enquiry here. If you have purchased any of our funeral wear and have any comments then we would absolutely love to hear them. Please leave them below!

Keltic Wear It Pink – Update

We recently wrote a blog post about Wear It Pink 2015. It’s a charity day that aims to raise money for breast cancer research. It’s a cause that many of us have some connection to, and so the staff here at Keltic were more than happy to get involved. In our blog post the other day we told you that we’d update you with the total raised for the day. Well… we’ve totalled it up and we raised £69.22! Even though it doesn’t seem like a huge amount, we’re thrilled with this. This is because we know that with thousands of businesses getting involved, each little contribution adds to a huge sum of money for an amazing cause.

We’ve also received some amazing photos from the other side of the globe! Louise is currently on her honeymoon and wore pink for the day to get involved even though she’s not here with us. We’re sharing some of her photos with you (with her permission of course) and it’s safe to say we’re just a little bit green eyed with those incredible views.

We all hope she’s having an amazing time and look forward to welcoming her back next month.

Keep Your Eyes Peeled

 
After the success of this charity day we are thinking ahead to the next one so watch this space, we’ll be back with more soon!
