Pixie Lott, Leona Lewis and friends visit Brentwood animal sanctuary fundraiser

The stars were out in force on Sunday for Hopefield Animal Sanctuary’s fundraising Christmas fete.

Sanctuary patron Leona Lewis brought in a number of friends from the world of showbiz to try to raise cash for the hard-up sanctuary which needs �10,000 to replace dilapidated facilities.

Leona was joined at the Sawyers Hall Lane site by hundreds of residents as well as Brentwood singer and chart-topper Pixie Lott, former Sugababe Keisha Buchanan, magician Dynamo, Britain’s Got Talent’s Stavros Flatley and actress Juliet Oldfield.

The three hour event was raising money for the charity, but the total raised hasn’t been calculated yet.

A tour of the site with Leona was auctioned among fans to raise money for the charity. The winning bid was �575.
