CRYSTAL SEES BUSINESS SOAR SINCE CHOOSING LINIAR Romford’s Crystal Windows is one of the South East’s largest manufacturers and installers of PVCu windows and doors, trading since 1995 with a strong reputation for great value and exceptional service in the M25 area. But since changing over to Liniar systems for its profile, the Crystal team has seen business soar. Tony Morris, Crystal’s Operations Manager, knows why: “We’ve already a built a successful business – sales have increased to £30m in the last year in spite of the recession – but since getting on board with the Liniar system at the end of 2013 we’ve seen a significant uplift in our revenue, and look to be heading towards a record year,” he explains. “The Liniar system has so many advantages – as the newest system around it’s been designed with a whole range of fabrication and installation benefits. The finished product gives the homeowner better thermal efficiency, a wide range of colour options and a choice of matching products such as the innovative ModLok™ patio and bi-fold doors and the Liniar Zoom conservatory roof. Crystal’s customers have responded well to the new range as our current sales – and profit – prove.” GM Fundraising celebrates 15 years and £1,000,000 raised with Hope House GM Fundraising is celebrating a double whammy - its 15th year of working with Hope House Children’s Hospices during which time they have raised an amazing £1,000,000! On 10th May a celebratory lunch was held at Hope House’s Sandstone Centre in honour of this achievement. The happy day ended with the unveiling of a new plaque and artwork commissioned by a local artist (provided free of charge). Each team member present was presented with a replica of the print to take home and thanked individually for all their contributions. Andy Goldsmith commented: “GM Fundraising’s ethos is to have fun while fundraising, and this rings true for Hope House. Fun is such an important aspect of what we do – for the kids and their families and siblings. Although I must confess I do wonder where the fun 12 JUL 2014 element comes into cycling so many miles, but each to their own! The fundraising is unrestricted, so on behalf of all the trustees, staff, children and families, thank you GM Fundraising.” or To read more, visit
