Raphaella first became aware of the Global Angels Charity when she was asked to perform at a gig fundraising for them, when she was just 16. She went home with my distinct pale blue wristband stamped with GLOBAL ANGELS, and proudly wore it for weeks on end until it finally perished and she had to reluctantly throw it away!
“Since then I always knew I wanted to put on my own music event for Global Angels, and so when part of my Music Degree’s final year course was to run an event, I immediately knew it was the perfect time and connected with Molly through Twitter to find out more about the charity and its 100% promise. I decided to hold the event at Bush Hall to raise awareness and funds for Global Angels & through working together Molly invited me to become an Ambassador. It was an extremely rewarding experience to know that myself, and everyone who took part ‘Stepped up’ and changed disadvantaged people’s lives and made a difference.
Now I run in the ‘Angel Runners’ team every year in the British 10k and have recently written a song ‘One Drop’ with DJ Krystal Roxx – fellow Angel Ambassador – for Global Angels, bringing our love and passion for music to help in another way through our working lives. We’ll be releasing the record with 100% of the profits going towards Global Angels, in keeping with one of the things we love so much about the charity.” Raphaella
