SWANS FOOTBALL TEAM IN HEAVEN WITH GUARDIAN ANGELS
THE SWANSEA CITY PREMIER LEAGUE FOOTBALL TEAM BEAT BRADFORD CITY 5 - 0 AT WEMBLEY ON 24 FEBRUARY TO WIN THE CAPITAL ONE CUP.
ANNA GABRIELI'S GUARDIAN ANGELS GOOD LUCK CHARM PLAYED ITS PART!!
Since the official launch of The Swans Angel In Your Pocket, the good luck charm for Wembley on Friday, 8th February via the South Wales Evening Post and Kevin Johns and Claire Pearson on Swansea Sound, things have gone from strength to strength for the Swans and for our Charity, the Lymphoma Leukaemia Myeloma Fund (Wales).
Prior to Friday 8th February 2013, we had raised just over £25,000, by selling Crystal Guardian Angel jewellery in the last twelve months.
Since the launch of the Swans Angels we have at least £30,000 with monies still coming in from continuing sales of the Swans Angels and Birthstone Guardian Angel jewellery.
Amazingly, sales show no sign of slowing down, in fact, sales are on the increase!!!!!
This amazing amount of money started to come in when I met with Angel Rangel and gave him a Swans Angel good luck charm, and asked that all the team players and management team have a Swans Angel to take to Wembley. Angel Rangel agreed to this but he had his Swans Angel straight away.
We now had an Angel on the pitch and an Angel In Your Pocket!!
Angel Rangel scored the very next day not having scored since August last year, and tweeted ‘I really hope people buy them. They did work on me’.
Angel’s tweet, together with the support of the South Wales Evening Post and Swansea Sound, had the most amazing response,
At the same time the NHS Intranet also featured a congratulatory article on our success in raising £25,000 for Ward 11, Singleton Hospital, which had a huge number of likes on Facebook.
With all the above support, news travelled extremely fast and demands for the Swans Angels and the Crystal Birthstone Angel jewellery grew and grew.
We only had a two week period to market and sell the Swans Angel, and the Swans Fans and the people of Swansea and the surrounding areas were absolutely brilliant. So many people were keen to offer their help and support in distributing and selling the Angels.
I would like to give a massive thank you to everyone who has supported the Charity by purchasing one of the Guardian Angels. Their support has been overwhelming.
