I just think that there is no real need for her to do charity wrok. She is not a Princess, has been treated as "not one of us", by the RF for a long time and has also lost popularity with the British public who clearly don't want her around even as a "former Princess" public figure. So why not give up, get a normal job if she can find something, or just retire into private life. If she wants to be invoved with charities she can connect with some existing one and do something for them at times.
Anytime someone raises money to help right a cause is a good thing. Even Sarah. Personally, I think she’s lonely. She’s on the outside looking in. Her “happy divorce” song is all she knows. Yes it would be better if she would be more independent but I doubt that happening. It’s really sad when you think of it. I think at times it’s not her neediness that bothers people as much as her taking does. JMO-she’s lonely

Good. She's alone. She's a cafe-society scrounger who makes people run for the exits.

Thank you for clearing that up. Here I thought she was working with charities like the Cancer trust (founded 1990), Children in Crisis (1993), Not for sale (2001), Care (1945) to name a few. I guess I missed that she had ditched these and was trying to what start new charities?????

Since when has been being a princess been a requirement to doing charity work? Or divorce mean you have to stop? Diana, Alexandra (Denmark) come to mind as proof that really isn't the case. Sarah is doing nothing any woman of her background hasn't done with their life. Focussing on charity and society work, after kids are grown.

But yes, she should abandon charities she has helped with for over 30 years, because she is no longer a royal. I mean that would be the responsible thing.

Again the Yorks get railroaded for breathing, people criticize them no matter what they do.

Retire into private life? We peasants do charity work as well. And I wont be hanging up my volunteer badge simply for lack of tiara. So why should she?

Ugh, what is that every time we see a photo of Sarah at some charity event the slugs come out. They slime everything she is or has done and judging by some posts, have an intimate knowledge of her personal finances. Even worse, they want her to go away, be banished from society because they have decided she is not worthy.

Well, you said it Countessmeout, why should she have disappeared once she was divorced? She has enough money not to have to need a job but she puts in an awful lot of time with charity work she has been involved in for decades and she doesn't mind getting her hands dirty to show the need.

People who troll someone they have never met except via gossip rags need to take a good hard look at themselves and asked if they have spent even two hours doing charity work in the last week? Month? Year? At all? Well I am betting it is never for almost all of them because anyone who volunteers for a charity knows it takes more time than fishing in your wallet or writing a cheque to support a charity.

Sarah gives of her time and, when invited she attends charity gala's and since she is not a multi-millionaire donor I can only surmise she is there because she is someone people enjoy having around because she isn't just a wannabe.
