As a family run business, we enjoy contributing to the local community and charities. This includes regular contributions, sponsorship and fund raising for charity, as well as promoting women in business and the recruitment of apprentices.
Our Director John McChrystal would like to say a big thank you to everyone who donated and helped raise money for Prostate Cancer Research. John rode the 2023 RideLondon Essex 100 for this great charity, but the fundraising didn't stop there. He also rode the Liverpool to Chester, followed by the Manchester to Blackpool charity cycle rides.
We are proud to sponsor Exodus Rounders Team. Exodus currently has 3 teams in the Bury league, which offers women and girls of all ages and abilities the opportunity to learn and play team sport, make new friends and be part of a community.
“Without the support of Crystal Health Group our teams would not be able to carry on. They have helped us buy new kits for all 3 of our teams, that’s 45 new kits in total and their generosity has also helped to pay for our pitch rent and new equipment. Last year this enabled us to start a brand new team of Junior players, age 9 – 18 who will now have the opportunity to enjoy the sport for years to come. We can’t thank them enough!” Nat Johnson – Team Captain Exodus A & Juniors.
This support group is close to our hearts and our nominated charity. As well as regular financial contributions, we have helped raise thousands of pounds through charity bike rides since 2015. Company staff have ridden hundreds of miles including the coast to coast ‘Way of the Roses’ ride from Morecambe to Bridlington, followed by a Scottish Highlands adventure. This included Inverness to John o' Groats, and a loop of Orkney!
A charity that is close to the heart of our QA Manager Jemma. Tragically, Jemma’s close friend Hazel Wilcock, who worked at St Ann’s Hospice, was killed in a gas explosion in February 2021. Jemma raised almost £15,000 for the hospice though various fundraising events, including a 60-mile bike ride from Manchester to Blackpool. Friends and family took part in the bike ride which was sponsored by Crystal Health Group. You can read the full story here on the BBC.
Our experience with the apprenticeship scheme is positive. We believe in providing our young people with the opportunity to develop and realise their full potential. A good example of this is our current Operations Manager Olivia Kelly. Olivia started with Crystal Health Group in 2017. Since then, her attitude, work ethic and eagerness to learn has seen her promoted several times to her current position.
Our founder Nichola McChrystal, is a strong advocate of women in business and has worked with The Women’s Organisation to promote and empower women. Nichola has provided business advice and continues to encourage women to become entrepreneurs.
