Latest live and unplugged video link http://londonglossy.com/2012/07/sweet-dreams-sara-lilly-cover/ She's cute, she's loud and she's proud. She's a babe - with legs and eyelashes to die for - but she's super smart, passionate and true to herself.

Sara has her own children's fashion / lifestyle & multi media brand, "Strawberry Girl" The idea to inspire children to believe in themselves and have fun being creative. Strawberry Girl Fashion was featured for Fashion Week this year where Sara choreographed twelve children from the ages of 4 to 12 to raise money and awareness for the good works the A1 Charity does to help stop the hideous crime of Human Trafficking. Thousands of pounds were raised to help prevent Human Trafficking as a result. Sara also ended up on the catwalk with the children as they wanted her there with them.

Sara is also a patron of SHS charity which helps deprived children stay in school and be educated - she works alongside other musicians to inspire children to stay away from gangs and crime and takes great pleasure in being a positive role model to young people with her "can do" attitude and teaching children how to have fun expressing themselves. Having suffered from Anorexia Nervosa from 14 to 21, and nearly dying going down to 4 stones, Sara Lilly is an example that with the right attitude you can do anything you set your mind to. She is always true to herself, generous with her time  and encourages young people to believe in themselves and have confidence. Sara's mantra is "The best way to predict your future is to create it. So go on, it's never too late to discover the Strawberry Girl in you."
