The 63-year-old wrote: “This will be my friend John Chart’s last trek. John is suffering from Motor Neurone Disease (MND, also known as ALS). He is currently climbing Everest with Little Red & team.”
Sarah then continued, saying: “John needs your help as he begins to lose his legs on this incredibly challenging journey to base camp, where he hopes to make a statement and raise awareness about MND and how more research is needed.”
“Please, if you can, donate at the link in my bio to help raise money for a cure. Any little bit can help. And please help spread the word by sharing this message (or your own) so that we can all encourage John as he faces this unimaginable challenge. Thank you,” she then said.

Fergie snubbed from coronation
In other, Fergie-related news, it was recently revealed that Sarah WON’T be attending the coronation. Now, the real reason behind her snubbing has been revealed by former royal butler Grant Harrold.
Speaking to Spin Genie, he said: “It’s interesting that Sarah Ferguson isn’t invited as she is a close member and friend of the royal family, including the King, and I understand she still continues to live under one roof with her husband who she is divorced from. In recent years, Sarah and Andrew have become very close again and continue to spend time together and I think that’s also for the benefit of their daughters too.”
Harrold then continued, speculating: “It could be because she is no longer an official member of the royal family. Maybe they are only inviting senior members of the royal family or married members of the royal family.”
