The Sarah Hughes Trust

The Sarah Hughes Trust is a charity established in 2021 by friends and family in memory of the Observer and Guardian journalist Sarah Hughes. By supporting the Guardian’s and Observer’s Positive Action work-placement scheme, our aim is to provide financial support for aspiring and talented journalists.

We also hold an annual lecture in Sarah’s name at the History of Medicine Society at the Royal Society of Medicine.

This event includes the presentation of The Sarah Hughes Trust Prize, an award set up to recognise exceptional journalism that exposes false or misleading information– so-called ‘fake news’ – in health or medicine.





The Sarah Hughes Archive

The Sarah Hughes Archive is Sarah’s collection of printed newspaper cuttings stored and preserved by The Sarah Hughes Trust. The archive contains the physical versions of her articles, features, book reviews, tv guides, news reports and sports journalism. Covering her hugely popular television and entertainment writing, it also holds her earlier sport journalism on horse racing, football, boxing and USA College football and basketball, and includes her award winning human rights reports with the photojournalist Kate Holt, on human right abuses by UN peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The Sarah Hughes Archive captures Sarah’s eclectic journalism and acts as an ode to the physical materiality of newspapers and printed matter. Including cuttings from the Guardian, the Observer, the Independent, the Independent on Sunday, the I, the Manchester Evening News, Sports First, New Nation, and New York Daily News, the archive also contains Sarah’s ‘under-the-line’ writing  through her Guardian TV blogs and episode recaps, including her engaging Twitter feed (April 2011 - April 2021).
