Supporting Community Interest During Challenging Times


Now more than ever community spirit is thriving up and down the country during these difficult times, whether that’s online or on the streets helping those in need. At Crystal Clear Bristol, we take great pride in donating to local charities and community interest companies as part of our corporate social responsibility within our area. 

Therefore, we are pleased to announce that during this challenging climate we are supporting the community interest company Community of Purpose. Crystal Clear Bristol has over 100 years’ joint experience in the supply and installation of windows, doors and roof lights and has previously raised funds for MacMillan Cancer Support. Now we are opening new doors to help more people in need.

The aim of Community of Purpose is to “act as a link between communities and a range of local authority and voluntary organisations to develop activities and services to generate aspiration, confidence and address inequalities”.


This year Community of Purpose launched its 20/20 Challenge, which invited 20 local businesses in the Bristol area to donate £1,000 each towards the cost of a new vehicle which will be used for two of their three main strands. One of which is the Break Free initiative which delivers free activities in the form of a mobile sports village to some of the poorest areas in South Bristol. The other is the Bristol Together Championships which utilises the power of sports to break down the boundaries of race, class, faith and geography. By collaborating together to raise £20,000 not only brings the business community together but is also a huge push forward for Community of Purpose.

Crystal Clear Bristol is one of a select few businesses to be part of this special 20/20 Challenge campaign. The money donated will change the lives of those on our doorstep. Although the end goal isn’t possible at the moment with the current situation, Community of Purpose will be able to utilise the van for its future projects for years to come.

During this climate where businesses are looking after their bottom line, it’s key to do our bit – no matter how big or small – to help charities that are close to our heart. At Crystal Clear Bristol we hope that we are doing something truly positive to serve our local community.

A Crystal Clear Winner With Our Biggest Competition Yet

In collaboration with Bristol-based radio station The Breeze, Crystal Clear have awarded a worthy winner of a £5,000 window and door overhaul with our biggest competition yet.  

Spreading the word far and wide with The Breeze by getting listeners to nominate either themselves or someone they knew who was deserving of this outstanding prize, the entries were overwhelming. 

With submissions from those whose homes were in need of a little DIY SOS we were delighted to deliver a special service to the chosen winner Jenny Fry. 

Jenny who works in a care hospice and also cares for her husband who has had a stroke, nominated herself in the hope of treating the family and of course their home which had also been through some tough times. 

Three years ago their home was broken into by burglars whilst the couple were asleep in bed.

“They took my Christmas money which was downstairs at the time, and they took the car, the disabled badge and the scooter which was in there too. We didn’t find the car until three months afterwards,” said Jenny. 

Breakfast Presenter Tony Wright from The Breeze delivered the news with a glass of bubbles that Jenny had won the competition, whilst James from Crystal Clear took a look around the home to see what could be achieved with the £5,000 prize. 

As the windows were looking tired and the front door was certainly in need of replacing, she knew exactly what was on her wish list – new energy efficient windows for both upstairs and downstairs and a black composite door. 

Following the break in of their family home, security was of course a main priority. That’s why the doors and windows we supply at Crystal Clear are approved by Secured by Design – Official Police Security Initiative.

After the fit of the £5,000 windows and door competition prize, Jenny was over the moon with the results. 

“Well what a fabulous job of our new windows and door. 1st class service. Excellent workers. Clean, tidy, polite, efficient. A credit to you at Crystal Clear. Lots of people commented on our products already. Neighbours have now said that they want Crystal Clear windows too! We will be highly recommending your company thanks again.”

Crystal Clear regularly receive five star reviews and customer recommendations which make us a leading supplier and installer of windows, doors, conservatories and roof lights in Bristol and the surrounding areas. 

If you’re inspired by what the Fry family achieved with Crystal Clear Bristol and want to take a look at our extensive display of windows, doors and conservatories then visit our showroom or call 0117 911 0272 to discuss your ideal design with our highly skilled and knowledgable team.
