It has been a fantastic first half of the year for Ivor so far, visiting hundreds of
children and having more fun than ever!
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
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!
