Nadine Coyle has announced that Girls Aloud will be reuniting in honor of their late member Sarah Harding.
The 39-year-old singer died on September 5, 2021 after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
Now the girl band that made her famous will be holding a special event to raise money in her honor.
Fellow bandmate Nadine Coyle said OK! about their plans.
“We are planning an evening for an event to raise money in honor of Sarah. She’s very much on the forefront of our minds,” she said.
“We want to raise money for a medical device that will help diagnose cancer earlier so people can be treated. We definitely want to do something to help others.”
“[Sarah’s passing] still touches us deeply when I think about all that she went through,” she continued.
While the rest of the band, Cheryl Tweedy, Kimberley Walsh and Nicola Roberts all hope to be reunited with their children.
“Apparently Cheryl Bear and Kimberley have their three little ones (Bobby, Cole and Nate) and we planned to get all the babies together a while ago but never got around to it,” says Nadine, mother of 8-year-old daughter Anaiya, told the publication .
To keep Sarah’s memory alive, Nadine often spoke about her close friend and her grief.

The month after her death, Nadine appeared on The Ryan Tubridy Show on RTÉ Radio 1 and admitted it had been very traumatic for her.
“It was awful, I have to say,” admitted the Derry native.
“It’s been awful since she got sick. It’s been a really traumatic year and a half – it’s almost two years at this point.”
“It is a cruel, cruel disease that I know many people suffer from and I wish it for all [going through it] All the best. We definitely lost a big one there. She was incredible.”
“It’s so fresh and I still think she’s going to call, so I’m in that phase … I’m definitely still in the processing phase.”
“Me and Sarah were close and have always remained close. We were in the band and a great support for each other in the years that followed,” she continued.
Nadine said Sarah sent her signs from beyond the grave.
“I was so close to her in life that it’s difficult to bridge that gap. But there were definitely things she made her presence felt on a couple of occasions.”
“There were a few days where my headphones would just fly across the table while I was sitting and putting on my makeup. This happened three days in a row.
“No reason, they just flew over and the girls with hair and makeup said, ‘It has to be Sarah.’ There’s no reason they would fly so far.
“And then one night I was talking about her at my house and something flew off a shelf and I was like, ‘Is that Sarah? Does she just throw things?’
“You just want her to text you and say, ‘Yes, it’s me! I’ll throw headphones at you.’”
