IVOR GOODSITE

The much-loved industry mascot

put his best foot forward for the Sue

Ryder Mascot Gold Cup 2015 event

held on 26 April, rubbing shoulders

with mascots from a variety of

different organisations keen to set a

new world record.

Organised by national hospice and

neurological healthcare charity,

Sue Ryder, the event was held at

Wetherby Racecourse in Wetherby,

West Yorkshire, raising over £18,000.

A colourful line-up of characters

joined Ivor at the start line to break

the Guinness World Record of 100

mascots in a one kilometre race; of

the 130 mascots who took part, 128

ran home to glory over the

finish line.

AndrewWood, Sue Ryder fundraiser

and race organiser said: “We’re

absolutely delighted! The Foresters

Mascot Gold Cup is a great addition

to the Wetherby’s family day

meeting and we’re grateful so many

Ivor Goodsite is officially a

world record holder...

mascots came along to help us

break the World Record and raise

more vital funds for Sue Ryder than

ever before.”

Edward Hardy, Chief Executive

of the Considerate Constructors

Scheme said: “We always knew our

industry mascot Ivor Goodsite was

world class – and this goes to

prove it!

“I’m sure all the children who meet

Ivor will be impressed to discover

that not only is Ivor a considerate

constructor but a Guinness World

Record holder!”

Ivor Goodsite is now officially a record holder after helping smash the Guinness

World Record for the most mascots running in one race.
