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!
Once again it’s the time of year for celebrations and plenty of wonderful food. Hasn’t it come around quickly?! Last Friday we had our Keltic Christmas party at the ICC in Birmingham. This years theme was ‘The Hollywood Ball.’ We had a great night with amazing food, entertainment and of course some Christmas drinks!
On 18th-19th November we attended the Road Safety GB conference in Nottingham, and what a successful two days it was! With a lot of interest in our stand we got to speak to some lovely people over the course of the event, getting great feedback on our products.
This year we promoted our very popular Street Feet kit, which is the ideal educational resource for Road Safety Training. The kit models real life roads and crossings to allow children to practice route planning and road navigation in a safe environment. It features role-play tabards that help children to understand crossings, lights and signs, and destination mats with which to practice navigation. It’s something that we’re really proud of.

And Now The Important Bit… Free Food!
As with every year at the conference we had the opportunity to meet some wonderful new people whilst catching up with some more familiar faces. To everyone we handed out our edible lollipop signs along with our Road Safety themed cookies. They went down a storm! After several requests from our loyal customers we are looking to bring back the ever popular cupcakes next year!
Thank you to everyone who visited our stand and we hope to see you all again next year!

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!
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.
Wear It Pink in New Zealand!
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!
Did you get involved with Wear It Pink? We’d love to read your comments about the day. And as always if you have any enquiries with Keltic just give us a ring on 08450 66 66 99. Alternatively make an online enquiry here.

This charity organises a day whereby businesses and schools all over the country wear pink in order to generate money and awareness for breast cancer research. All of us know people and families affected by cancer, so today was a great chance for us to raise some money for a cause that we truly believe in. Read on to see Keltic Wear it Pink!

Road Safety Week is the UK’s biggest road safety event and is aimed at raising awareness about the part we can play in preventing tragedies and making roads safer!
As you may well know, Keltic are huge supporters of road safety training. We think that it is vital that children have this education in order that they learn how to safely navigate roads. Unfortunately every year many children are involved in collisions. Many of these could be prevented if the child was more aware of their actions and potential consequences. Teaching children about these things during the course of road safety training can drastically reduce the chance of a child being involved in such collisions.
Road Safety Week Competition
Anything that we can do to support Road Safety Week, we are more than happy to do. This year we thought that it would be appropriate to run a competition, the winner of which will receive one of our Street Feet kits. These kits facilitate the kind of training that we are talking about. They model real life roads, with role-play tabards that help children understand crossings, lights and signs. They also includes destination mats which allow children to practice route planning and road navigation.
