Issue 39

An eventful six months for Ivor

During his visits, Ivor has handed

out over 3500 standard or deluxe

fun packs, 188 sets of Children’s PPE

and more than 400 workbooks.

As well as meeting hundreds of

children, Ivor has visited lots of

different contractors and met with

an incredible amount of people,

teaching them how important it

is to be safe around construction


Ivor has also been busy promoting

the different careers available in

construction to encourage children

Throughout the last six months Ivor

has attended many charity events

and community interaction days.

This was great for Ivor as he got to

One event Ivor attended was

This event was organised by

The children loved seeing Ivor!

during the week.

Ivor was extremely impressed with

the overall standard of the site and

the work Galliford Try do with the

local community.

The site team at Protheroe House

have successfully raised over £3000

for a local charity called Kith & Kids

which supports families living with
