Sarah, Duchess of York, is recognised with an award for her charity work

The duchess' work with Street Child, an organisation that identifies children living on the street and helps them back into a family and school, has touched the hearts of many.

Sarah Ferguson has received an award for her charity work.
At Hello!'s first Star Women Awards the Duchess of York was awarded the Inspiration of the Year Award for her various involvements in charity work, including that of her patron organisation Street Child.
The duchess' work with Street Child, an organisation that identifies children living on the street and helps them back into a family and school, has touched the hearts of many.
Speaking about her work for the organisation last year, she issued a plea to help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia.
"As a mother, I have found the stories and scenes of children affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia utterly heartbreaking.
"They need our help."
The same day, the duchess appeared on This Morning and spoke about her support for a campaign that would ensure all ingredients be listed on pre-packaged food after a little girl died as a result of consuming something with incorrect labelling.
She also attended the British Heart Foundation's 'Bias And Biology' panel, which she personally backed to raise awareness about the inequalities in women's health care for heart disease.
Spice Girl Mel B was also recognised at Hello!'s award night, winning the Campaign of the Year award for her work helping survivors of domestic abuse.
Fresh from her comeback Spice World tour, the entertainer opened up about her personal struggles as she accepted the award.
"I went to a refuge in Leeds and I sat down with 15 women, and they all had exactly the same story as mine," said Mel. "I was so embarrassed to talk about it but then I started speaking about it and I felt so empowered. And I thought, if I can help people going through my situation, then this is my mission and my purpose – apart from being a Spice Girl and Girl Power!"
