Leona Lewis walks for Hopefield, talks to Phoenix

Singer Leona Lewis took part in a charity walk in England yesterday to raise money for Hopefield Animal Sanctuary, based in Sawyers Hall Lane, Brentwood. The six-mile walk was part of Hopefield’s SOS (Save Our Sanctuary) campaign to raise £100,000 by Christmas.

Nikki Mills and Paul Golder managed to catch up (literally) with Leona at the halfway stage, while drinking tea in a field. Nikki had a chat with Leona about her involvement with Hopefield which you can hear by clicking below:

Leona’s love of animals is well-documented. She is a patron of Hopefield and has visited the centre many times, and supports other animal rights groups including PETA and WSPA.

Joining us on the walk was Leona’s manager and former Phoenix FM presenter Nicola Carson, who started off as a volunteer at Hopefield and is now a trustee of the sanctuary. Other walkers included Hopefield’s deputy manager Lianne Angliss, and the Brentwood Gazette’s Iain Johnson, a regular on Phoenix FM’s Wednesday night Gazette show.

And yes, it was six miles, and not five as mentioned elswhere. We did the walk too – that extra mile really hurt!
