How is it May already?! There’s just been so much happening in the space of five months, that we’ve all lost track of time. I don’t even know where to begin.
Well, looking at our last news item when the tornado was just beginning to lift off, we proudly you introduced Ivar the Effecta to you and his plan to help raise awareness and funds for a worthy cause, Rainbows Children’s Hospice by partaking in the three-peak challenge. While we’re at it, he would truly appreciate your support in joining him in the challenge as well as some kind donation that will help make a difference to the children at Rainbows Hospice.
If you’ve been keeping in touch with us through our Facebook and Twitter, I can’t see how you would’ve escaped updates of and from our li’l Viking. Yes, Ivar has been nothing short of a celebrity ever since he came over to the UK. He has even mastered the social media craze and decided to open his own Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Ivar’s main mission when he embarked upon his journey to the UK was to meet local installers and spread the Effecta warmth, while using that as a legitimate excuse to gallivant around the UK. Ivar’s UK tour was a great success and brought together some great calibre of people who were more than worthy to be a part of the Effecta clan.
Ivar was joined by some of his most trusted Jarls, namely Hannes and Erik who also travelled across the seas from Great Sweden along with Ben and Gordon who journeyed from the Kingdom of Tiverton to share their wealth of knowledge and expertise on the inner workings of the clan. Those who attended were bestowed the Great Bible, partook in some serious discussions, shared the plentiful harvest of the day and toasted to good health before they called the day to an end for a well-deserved slumber.
Apart from the successful yet serious clan meetings, Ivar and his Jarls seemed to have had a whale of a time on their first ever UK tour and thoroughly enjoyed themselves silly – they made it their mission to. After all, they heard over the grapevine about Jack and his inability to juggle work and play.
A tour of the UK will not be so if it doesn’t begin at the very tail end – appropriately named Land’s End. And so it began…
