Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding’s legacy could see over £1 million donated to charities after the band’s reunion.
The singer died from breast cancer in 2021, aged 39. But she is still entitled one-fifth of the band’s profits made from concerts, TV appearances and merchandise until 2032, reports the Mirror.
Sarah’s portion of the money will from the reunion, which is said to include a new single and tour, will go to her estate. This is then set to be donated to charitable causes, including The Sarah Harding Breast Cancer Appeal, launched by The Christie Charity.
A source told the Mirror: “Sarah’s estate is set for a huge boost from the reunion, which is only right seeing as it was Sarah’s tragic passing that brought the band back together.

Cheryl Tweedy, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh and Nadine Coyle this week reunited professionally for the first time in more than a decade. The group were seen at a North London studio, recording a video dressed in Wonder Woman-style costumes.

Sarah was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer after finding a lump in 2020 and being reluctant to seek treatment. A mastectomy and chemotherapy failed to halt the disease.
