Brentwood: Leona Lewis donned walking boots to help raise money for Hopefield Animal Sanctuary
Leona Lewis took part in a five-mile sponsored walk in support of Hopefield Animal Sanctuary over the weekend.
The singer, who is the patron of the Brentwood-based animal charity, was one of 40 fundraisers who donned their walking boots for the trek on Sunday.
The group raised �2,000 towards the sanctuary winter fund and for the cost of services.
And despite the weather the walkers and their dogs made it around Weald Country Park’s five-mile course.
Lianne Angliss, deputy manager of the sanctuary, said: “The miserable weather put quite a lot of people off coming out, but it was a good day. A couple of people got lost along the way, but we rounded them up and everyone finished the course.
