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.

Our first brighten up your street delivery

Our brighten up your street competition has been up and running for the last few weeks on facebook and we've had loads of great entries. On Saturday, we headed out to the first lucky winner in Blackrock, Dublin to deliver refreshing innocent orange to Leonie Lawlor and family, and all her lovely neighbours.


Leonie's reason for wanting to Brighten up her Street was "We have a great mix of people who've lived on this road for years and people who are new to the area - I know everyone would enjoy a surprise of an Innocent Juice delivery on their doorstep". Well, we couldn't have agreed more, and we hope our delivery of orange juice brightened up the cold morning for Leonie and all her neighbours. We'll be visiting and brightening up more streets in the coming weeks, so keep an eye on our facebook wall for the latest updates. To be in with a chance to brighten up your street and win a free delivery of innocent orange for all your neighbours, just click here.

5 hats of the week

Last week and this week have seen so many hats coming through the doors of Fruit Towers Dublin has meant that picking this week's hat of the week is a tough task. To make it easier on ourselves, we've decided to pick 5 different hats from 5 different knitters.

First up are Aoibheann and Aisling from Dublin with their cute rodent in a wedding dress.

Next is this lovely leprechaun hat hat that came from the Clontarf Private Nursing Home.

Eva from Dublin knit this cool koala hat. It looks like it's waving at us too.

Irene from Wicklow knit us this beautiful hat. With winter coming we'd love a full size version.

Our last hat of the week is actually of mixture of two hats from the Leeson Park Nursing Home. We thought the little piggy hat would look rather fetching wearing this green jumper hat.

Thanks so much to all the knitters above, we'll be sending you all out some innocent smoothie vouchers.
