‘It doesn’t feel like she’s gone’ – Cheryl reflects at Sarah Harding’s fundraiser

Cheryl has said she “doesn’t feel like she’s gone at all”, as she joins a charity run in memory of former Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding.

He survived, singers Cheryl, Kimberly Walsh, Nadine Coyle and Nicola Roberts joined fans and supporters in Race For Life For Sarah, a 5k run to celebrate Harding’s life and raise money money for breast cancer.

Harding died at the age of 39 in September after it was revealed she had breast cancer that had spread to other parts of her body.

Speaking at a charity race in London’s Hyde Park, Cheryl said of Harding’s death: “Honestly, I never experienced or anticipated this grief.

“You know, I lost my grandparents when I was little and I lost a friend when I was little, but there was nothing like this, the feeling of shock and distrust and it still lingers today. to be honest. I still can’t believe it’s real.”

When asked if it was possible to reunite Girls Aloud without Harding, Cheryl told PA news agency: “It’s been a year. It doesn’t feel like she’s gone at all.”

Roberts, 36, Coyle, 37, and Cheryl wore pink T-shirts with the words Race for Life as they ran together in Hyde Park, while Walsh, 40, joined remotely because she was unable to join them in London.

As the three singers walked onto the stage in front of the Hyde Park attendees, Roberts held up her phone and said she couldn’t reach Walsh at the time and suggested she might be ” warm-up” for his own race.

Speaking at the event, Coyle told PA news agency she “denies” Harding’s illness.

“This time last year, we were really hanging out,” she said, adding: “We all met last year. She was there and we were talking and she didn’t even seem that sick.

“I’ve been in denial the whole time and being the friend who said ‘Oh, it’s going to be okay’, you know, I was in total denial until the day she passed away.”

Her comment prompted Roberts to say: “We worry about your rejection, too. Like I thought for me, I felt like I was worried for you that you weren’t so present. “

Speaking of Harding’s “electrical” energy, Roberts said: “Obviously it’s kind of weird coming together now to get things going because her energy is so electric that we… the four of us. I feel chilled…

“Sarah’s energy is like fireworks so I feel like there’s a huge difference in energy when she’s not there.

“I think for us right now, we don’t feel like Girls Aloud. We don’t feel like a band without Sarah. She’s, like I said just now, she’s such a huge part of our energy that it doesn’t feel like that.”

The girl band formed on the TV show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and went on to have hits including Sound Of The Underground and The Promise. They disbanded in 2013 and both had successful solo careers in music and television.

Cheryl also said it’s great that the surviving members of Girls Aloud can participate in Race For Life For Sarah.

“So the fact that she had a request that we could accommodate was great for us because it felt like we were on to something.

“We felt like we couldn’t do anything for a long time.”

The band’s fundraising efforts will end with a grand gala at the end of the year.
