Monthly Review: A Remarkable Month of Giving, Innovation, and Celebrations

As we bid farewell to an eventful October, Crystal Galleries looks back on a time filled with achievements, charitable activities, and exciting new ventures. Here's a rundown of our October journey through a series of notable milestones and remarkable initiatives.

We are delighted to announce that you can now view and download our 2024-25 e-catalogue using the links below. The first link will download the Crystal Galleries branded e-catalogue and the second link will download the unbranded version.

The e-catalogue features our best selling lines whilst also introducing over 100 new products to our extensive range of Glass and Crystal Gifts and Awards. The e-catalogues are interactive with numerous search and display facilities, links directly to the different categories, download and sharing facilities, plus much more.

We will also be adding individual high resolution images and unique selling points for all of the products to the e-catalogue in the next couple of weeks.

The catalogues can also be personalised with your own company logo and contact details that will enable you to email out direct to your customers or add a link to your website. As always we will have uniform 620x620 images for all of the products in the catalogue. Please contact our Customer Service Team for any additional information or if you would like to receive a copy of the trade price lists.

Another local charity close to our hearts, last month saw the Teesside Charity Annual Ball take place at Hardwick Hall. Another fabulous night saw local companies raise a staggering £70,000 for worthy causes right here on Teesside, with a massive thank you to all those who attended. The money raised will undoubtedly improve the lives of Teesside people who need and deserve our help and we as a company are proud to support them.

Our exciting range of scented candles and diffusers are perfect for Christmas and make an ideal gift for your customers to present a personalised candle to their customers that will be in their homes over the holiday season. The seasonal scents that are available include Festive Musk, Festive Tree, Festive Spice and Mulled Wine.

A group of our female colleagues put their glad rags on for a day out at the North East Ladies Day event last month. It's a charity event that holds special significance for our director, Jo, who currently serves as the chair of the charity responsible for fundraising and events. This year, the event successfully raised over £12,000, contributing to the support of local charities in their daily endeavors. NELD has raised over £375,000 since the first event in 1983, a great achievement and all thanks to those of you who purchase tickets and continue to make the day a great success.

We are excited to continue our commitment to environmental responsibility by introducing external electric charging stations in the car park. This complements our ongoing initiatives, including our tree planting partnership with Ecologi on our new Beech awards, the use of recycled bubble wrap and cardboard in our shipments, as well as upcoming sustainability initiatives.

This Christmas, Crystal Galleries is thrilled to unveil a stunning addition to our collection - the limited edition Stemless Wine Glasses adorned with exquisite Hanging Stars. These elegant glasses offer a perfect blend of sophistication and charm, making them an ideal choice for your seasonal gatherings and gift-giving.

Micha accomplished her bike race around London last month, raising a fantastic £100 in the process. But that's not all! She has her sights set on even more challenges. In addition to signing up for another race at the end of October, she's already preparing for next year's London to Brighton race. What's more, Micha's daughter will be taking on a 55km race next April, making it a household filled with a serious passion for cycling.

This November, the team at Crystal Galleries is once again gearing up for an incredible Movember effort. Movember is a global movement that aims to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.
