"I have been patron of the Teenage Cancer Trust @teenage_cancer for over 30 years and I am thrilled to be launching their vital Christmas appeal with the support of @hellomag," Sarah wrote. "Without the work of this charity too many young people will have to face cancer alone. At a special event in London this month, I and my daughters Beatrice and Eugenie, honorary patrons of the trust, met young cancer patients and family members supported by its specialist units.

"Support from the Teenage Cancer Trust means having someone in your corner at the toughest time. Young people with cancer are facing the hardest challenge of their lives – and they need our support."

Sarah has been an honorary patron of Teenage Cancer Trust since its launch in 1990 and puts it simply: "Without it – this charity funded entirely through donations – too many young people may have to face cancer alone."
