Vegan Singer Leona Lewis Teams Up With Animal Welfare Groups
Vegan singer Leona Lewis has teamed up with animal welfare charity Humane Society International UK (HSI) and Hopefield Animal Sanctuary.
Sharing the news on Instagram, Hopefield announced that Lewis had met with members of HSI at the sanctuary in Essex, UK.
Through the collaboration, the trio hope to to promote animal welfare and to encourage more people to give plant-based eating a try. They will be sharing stories of how some of the sanctuary’s residents were saved from factory farming, as well as giving an insight into their lives at Hopefield.
Visitors to the animal sanctuary can enjoy plant-based treats at the vegan tearoom, which was recently transformed to eliminate all animal products.

“Since the first day I visited Hopefield Animal Sanctuary I knew it would become a big part of my life” shares Lewis on the sanctuary’s website.
“My mission at Hopefield is to make sure these animals can continue to live here…that we can build Hopefield into a sanctuary that will educate people globally on animal welfare and continue to save more animals in need.”
The singer, who has avoided animal products for most of her life, also works with animal welfare group PETA.
Lewis was once crowned PETA’s person of the year, after famously turning down £1.5 million to open Harrod’s summer sale — an opportunity she rejected as the luxury department store sells real fur.
