An innocent act of kindness

Keep your eyes peeled for our new innocent angels Hannah and Esme delivering #innocentactsofkindness around campus


Innocent have employed two campus reps, AKA ‘innocent angels’ to express random acts of kindness in the form of a cute innocent smoothie and a personalised hand written note.

Hannah says “it is so satisfying seeing someone looking stressed in the library and handing them a simple smoothie to brighten up their day.”

Innocent’s motto is “helping people live well and die old,” their smoothies are packed with 100% natural ingredients. This month Hannah and Esme will be around campus lightening your day with the core range of smoothies. These smoothies are dressed in adorable hand knitted woolly hats and 25p from each smoothie goes to Age UK. These little woolly hats fight loneliness by helping raise money for activities in local Age UK centres where many older people can socialise by partaking in lunches and dance classes. Since starting off as an idea in 2003, people in the UK have knitted over 6 million hats which has raised over £2 million! On top of this Innocent donate 10 per cent of profits to charity!

Each month they will be giving out different ranges of innocent products, from super smoothies (a personal favourite) to innocent bubbles which makes an amazing mixer. Slightly less innocent but a splendid low calorie gin and tonic.

The smoothies are slowly being introduced into the cafes around university so you can always get smoothies for yourself if the angels can’t find you.
