Redwood Hamper Competition Winners

Posted 13 April 2007

In support of Animal Aid’s Veggie Month 2007, award-winning ethical producers of natural plant-based food Redwood teamed up with Animal Aid to give three people the chance to win a ‘hamper’ of delicious Redwood goodies, all totally free from animal ingredients, lactose, cholesterol, hydrogenated fats, artificial colours/preservatives and GMOs. Animal Aid can now reveal the winners and their answers to the question: why do you deserve to win the hamper?


Lydia Houghton from Malmesbury in Wiltshire

Lydia’s reason:

‘I am seriously considering becoming a veggie.’

I’ve never really been happy about eating meat. What's more, my nine year old has started asking a lot of ‘uncomfortable’ questions about where meat comes from. I find it really difficult answering him and want to show him that there is a choice. I would like to win the hamper to give me some more ideas and inspiration for experimenting with veggie cooking and to show my nine year old that people don’t HAVE to eat meat to enjoy their food. It might be just the encouragement we need to go veggie.’

Johanna Best for her brother Tom Jones and sister Sara Jones from Brechfa, Carmarthenshire

Johanna’s reason:

‘I think my teenaged brother Tom Jones (16) and sister Sara Jones (12) deserve to win for going veggie despite huge pressure from family and friends in the farming community in which they live! A brave step! I think (hope!) they will eventually go vegan :)’

Kim Leonard from Bristol

Kim’s reason:

‘As a family of animal lovers, we are finding it a little hypocritical to also love eating meat. We have discussed the veggie issue and are not that confident that we would be able to sustain it for very long...Any extra encouragement would be great!’

We hope all three winners enjoy their Redwood’s goodies. For those of you who didn’t win, watch this space for more competitions and good luck next time.
