Brighten up your street visits Galway

Another weekend and another lovely street brightened up with a free delivery of innocent orange juice. Over the weekend, we popped over to Galway to visit Brighten up your Street winner Aine Burns-Fitzpatrick. Aine wanted her street brightened up with a free delivery of innocent orange juice because "We have a nice little estate on the outside of town and have street parties so if we won we would all be drinking innocent at our next party". We liked the sound of an orange juice party.

Here's the lovely Aine taking her Brighten up your Street delivery.

Brighten up your street visits Cork

Last weekend we took a trip down south in our grass vans to deliver innocent orange juice to two lucky innocent brighten up your street winners. We had a great time meeting the winners and their neighbours. Here's how it all went down...

First up, we stopped by Douglas, Cork to deliver orange juice to Marie Bott and all her neighbours. Marie wanted her street brightened up by innocent "because i have great neighbours who are always there to help each other but with all the rain recently & the dark evenings we haven't been out the front catching up with each other - this would be a great reason to get talking again." We couldn't agree more. Here she is with her lovely kids and one of our orange juice delivery ladies.

Next stop was a trip to meet Eileen McGreevy in Carrigaline, Cork. Eileen wanted her street brightened up by innocent "Because with all the depressing weather we are having we could do with some brightening up. " We said no problems to Eileen and gave her and all her neighbours a free delivery of innocent orange juice.

Here she is with along with a few lovely neighbours.

The Knitting and Stitching Show

Last weekend we headed along to the wonderful knitting and stitching show in the RDS Dublin for a our second year in a row. Once again, it was a 4 day knitter's paradise with yarn, knitting needles, and of course knitters, as far as the eye could see. We had our very own innocent big knit stall and we had loads of big knit little hats knitted on the spot and dropped off by some wonderful people. We'll be announcing on the grand total number of hats this Friday so stay tuned to our facebook page .

Here are some pictures from our four lovely days at the knitting and stitching show.

Brighten up your street special deliveries

We packed up the innocent vans (really made from grass) with carafes of new innocent orange juice last weekend and headed for not one, but two Brighten up your street deliveries.

First stop was to Rachael, in Abbeywood Crescent, Lucan who asked for her street to be brightened up because "Its a really young area and there are loads of kids around, they would love a to get a surprise from Innocent :-)" We couldn't have agreed more so we stopped off in Lucan and made a free delivery of innocent orange juice to Rachael and all her neighbours.

Here's a picture of the lovely Rachel and our delivery ladies.

Then it was on to pay a visit to Dawn from Hopkins Haven in Monasterevin. Dawn asked for her street to be brighten up because "all the kids are out there having a ball together us mammies and daddies need something to refresh us while we look on !" We were delighted to oblige, so we took a spin to Kildare in our grass van and surprised Dawn and all her neighbours. Here's Dawn and her lovely daughter meeting the innocent orange juice delivery girls.

We'll be making more Brighten up deliveries in the coming weeks so make sure to get your entry in soon.

You probably noticed lately that we've gone a little knitting mad. We've been going all out to reach our goal of 80,000 little hats as part of the innocent Big Knit and to raise €20,000 for Age Action. Last year we paid a visit to the fantastic Knitting & Stitching Show in the RDS and we're popping back again this year, since last time was such a great success.

We'll be there knitting, chatting and giving out drinks to tired shoppers from the 10th to the 13th November and we have 4 pairs of tickets to give away to some lucky big knit knitters out there. Just answer the following question to be in with a chance of winning.

To which charity do we donate the money raised by the innocent Big Knit? Post your answers in the comments below and we'll pick our 4 winner from a (knitted) hat.
