If her family and lawyers thought it wasn't a good idea for her to take some legal action, she wouldn't be doing it. I'm sure they support her in what she do. That's her business. Just like it's our business if we decided to take some legal action.

There also may be details of what happened that weren't released to the public. I'm in agreement that Sarah wouldn't be doing this unless her lawyers and her family supported her in it.

Of course she can do it but if it's a wise thing to do is another. But if she does make some money out of it will keep her and her lawyers happy for a while.

Sarah is in Sydney - Thursday 20th - and just popped up on the evening news here.

All dressd up, she did a tour of one of our major hospitals, St Vincents, today - and will be the guest of honour at a ball tomorrow night.

Oh dear god why ? I suppose she can catch up with friends but how about instead of wasting the money ( flight hotel rooms etc ) we just use the money on the hospital.
I can never understand why rich people go to ball with a 3 rd grade celeb to raise money .,just give the money !!

I agree with you Royal Rob , all these balls what a waste of money.
In Belgium they are organising glitter Events for Charities , but at the end when all is paid there is not a lot left for the Charity !

There is a detailed report in today's newspaper about Sarah's visit to Sydney.

She and the CEO of St Vincent's Hospital will open the dancing at tonight's Life Ball fund-raiser - following in the footsteps of Diana, who did so back in1996.

It is hoped $3.2 million Oz dollars will be raised for the Intensive Care Unit - allowing the opening of a further twenty beds, and the purchase of twenty-one ventilators, dialysis machines and other vital equipment.

During yesterday's hospital tour, Sarah spoke about her recent twenty-four kilo weight loss - the result of long walks in Switzerland where she lives.

Sarah also denied daughter Eugenie is soon to marry her nightclub manager boyfriend.

Displaying her still present vitality, Sarah was seen darting through closing doors, and avoiding colliding with trolleys carrying patients.

At one point she jumped into the wrong car - and apologises to "some poor stranger".

Today is Friday in Sydney, and on Monday she is off to India, followed by Tuesday in New York.

Ah, but will they just give the money?

People consider the high ticket price a fair exchange for an evening out, where they can see and be seen.
And there are so many organizations competing for funds, it simply isn't possible to support all of them, so the savvy ones must offer a carrot.

It's too easy to just throw a fundraising letter into the trash.

There are lots of ways to raise money besides getting a ex royal and paying for flights hotels security and other sweeteners thrown in. We have enough well known people of our own to do the job

I've just checked out some of the details about tonight's Life Ball fund-raiser for St Vincent's Hospital.

There are a couple of auctions - and you too TRF members, can join in the fun and bid online along with those actually attending.

Fancy a private tour of Buckingham Palace?

How about staying in Sir Richard Branson's home on Necker Island in the Carribean?

No - maybe you could bid to stay in his Australian home in Noosa then.

Many, many tempting auction items - should be a big success for the hospital which doesn't have a lot of government support.

This is my concern. There could be more yet to some out of Pandora's Box. Everything the Fake Sheikh's lawyers can use will come out. Sarah's lawyers will make their money in any case.

"Hello" magazine has posted photos from last night's Life Ball here in Sydney, at which the Duchess of York was the guest of honour.

The event was held at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

One hundred and twenty years ago, Sarah's great-great grandmother, Viscountess Hamden, laid the foundation stone for the Ladies Pavillion there.

Sarah's sister Jane is also pictured.

The point of Sarah attending the ball and touring the hospital is that her great-great-grandmother, Viscountess Hampden, was the person to place the founding stone in the Ladies Pavilion.

It was totally relevant for her to be there and she looked absolutely beautiful.

I was astounded when I saw some of the items that were part of the fund-raising auctions associated with the Ball, Lord_Royal.

Not only the number of items on offer, but the high-end nature of them.

It struck me that Sarah, and her sister Jane, must have had the contacts and connections - along with the other people organising this event - to have a real go at raising some serious money for St Vincents Hospital.

One item was an experience at the venue where Jane was married many years ago at Whale Beach, for example.

It was good to see the Duchess of York in a good light and so busy.

Australia, India and the USA in a quick few days.

Better than the same old day to day routine most people are stuck with. Good for her.

I don't believe Sarah or her sister had much pull at all about the items. There are a lot more weathly and well connected people in Sydney than Sarah could ever compare with

Well neither do I, but their presence added a nice dimension to the occasion, given their great great grandmother's role in its initiation, and it's all in a good cause after all!

It's just that I think it's a waste of money. There wouldn't be anyone who thought "oh Sarah is going I must go to it " if she paid her own way it might be different but that's not how rent a celeb works. Believe me I have close relations who work in this area and they don't come free.

Oh, she'd never pay her own way!

But I know what you mean; personally I wouldn't cross the street to see Fergie, but others may feel differently.
And her being there did give the hospital some publicity, at least.

(Whether that actually translates into funds remains to be seen).
