It has been a fantastic first half of the year for Ivor so far, visiting hundreds of

children and having more fun than ever!



September 2015

Issue 38

Exciting times for Ivor!

January to June this year Ivor

has been on a colossal 150 visits

including 96 school visits, 24 site

visits and 30 other visits. Ivor has

been all over the county helping

contractors spread the word

of being safe on and around

construction sites.

In 2014 Ivor went on 300 visits

across the country, so it’s great to

see he has done half of that already.

All of Ivor’s products are also flying

of the shelves with an amazing

7,635 products sold.

Ivor has also been very busy with

his annual Hoarding Competition,

with a massive 48 entries this year.

The entries were so creative it was

so hard to choose a winner. After a

lot of deliberation Ivor finally chose

8 winners and everyone who took

part received a medal, a goody bag

and a certificate.

Ivor has been involved with

many different events this year

helping different contractors raise

lots of money for well-deserved

charities. Kier was one of these

contractors which helped raise

money for the amazing charity

‘Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice’,

which provides care for people

with life-changing illnesses. Kier

entered Ivor Goodsite at the

annual Sue Ryder Mascot Gold Cup

2015 costumed character race,

which was held at Wetherby, West


Over £18,000 was raised for this

amazing charity, as well as £3,000

being raised for other charities too.

This year Ivor was also lucky

enough to attend a cycle safety

event with contractor Brookfield

Multiplex. The event was held in

conjunction with the Metropolitan

Police Service, with the idea to give

cyclists a truck drivers’ perspective

of the roads.

Cyclists had an opportunity to sit

in the cab of a large goods vehicle

to experience how difficult it can

be for truck drivers to see cyclists.

This was a great opportunity for

Ivor to spread the message of how

important it is to stay safe.

The second half of this year is

already shaping up to be one of

Ivor’s best, so there’s plenty more

exciting events yet to come!
