“It doesn’t feel like she’s gone,” says Cheryl of Sarah Harding’s fundraiser

Cheryl said “it doesn’t feel like she’s gone at all” while taking part in a charity run in memory of former Girls Aloud bandmate Sarah Harding.

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

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

Speaking at the charity race in London’s Hyde Park, Cheryl said of Harding’s death: “To be honest I never experienced or expected this grief.

“You know I lost grandparents when I was younger and I lost a friend when I was younger but nothing like that, the feeling of shock and disbelief and it still lingers to be honest. I still can’t quite believe it’s real.”

Roberts, 36, Coyle, 37, and Cheryl wore pink t-shirts that read ‘Race for Life’ as they ran together in Hyde Park, while Walsh, 40, attended remotely as she was unable to to join them in London.

At the event, Coyle told the PA news agency she denied Harding’s illness.

“We actually hung out around this time last year,” she said, adding, “We all met last year. She was there and we talked and she didn’t even seem that sick.

“I was in denial all along and I was the friend who said ‘Oh it’s going to be alright,’ you know, I was in total denial up until the day she died.”

Of Harding’s “electric” energy, Roberts said, “Obviously it’s weird to get together quite a bit now to make things happen because her energy was so electric that we kind of… the four of us have a cold like this…

“Sarah’s energy was like fireworks, so I feel like this huge difference in energy when she’s not there.

“I don’t think we’re feeling like Girls Aloud right now. Without Sarah we don’t feel like a band. It was, as I just said, such a big part of our energy that it doesn’t feel like it.

The girl band formed on the TV show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002 and later had hits like Sound Of The Underground and The Promise. They broke up in 2013 and have all had successful solo careers in music and television.

Cheryl also said it’s great that the surviving Girls Aloud members could be involved in Race For Life For Sarah, saying: “You feel so helpless, you’ve never felt such hopelessness, it’s horrifying.

“The fact that she had a request that we can fulfill is great for us because it just feels like we’re doing something.

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

The band’s fundraising efforts are set to culminate with a grand gala dinner later in the year.
