ANGELS RAISE FUNDS FOR LLMF
Anna Gabrieli has been making and selling jewellery since late 2010. At Christmas 2011 she had raised a total of £3000. To date sales have totalled a staggering £25,000 in support of LLMF, the Myeloma Research Fund and other cancer support departments at Singleton Hospital.
Anna is pictured here at a recent one-day sale in ASDA Gorseinon.

Anna’s sister, Susan Evans was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2009; only a few days after their father had passed away.
Anna said: “Even though Sue’s husband’s employers were very supportive, I stayed with my sister every day. My friends became concerned for my welfare and urged me to join a life long learning course in jewellery making and my sister also encouraged me to do so.
I started making jewellery and pretty soon friends were buying them. Both Sue and I became involved and we would take them into Ward 11 (Singleton Hospital) and the patients and nurses would buy them. I asked people to give me their broken jewellery and I would recycle the beads into other jewellery.”
Sadly Susan passed away in April 2011.
At the end of January 2012, Anna was shown a crystal Guardian Angel and decided to make them. In this short period of time, Anna has raised £7,000 just selling Angels, making a grand total of £10,000. Sadly in June 2012, Anna's mother also passed away.
Anna makes the angels herself, aided by a band of industrious friends. Guardian Angels cost a minimum donation of £3.00 each.
Guardian Angels are available in many colours and attached to a key ring. Anna is also experimenting with Guardian Angel earrings and necklaces!
