Leona Lewis doesnt’t just have a beautiful voice, she’s also a vegetarian and advocate for animal rights. Her latest effort for the animals is a campaign to save a U.K. animal sanctuary in need of donations.

The singer recently tweeted to her followers that she needs help to save the Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Essex. According to contactmusic, she also asked local businesses to help in anyway they can. She wrote “Of course we need cash donations but also any business can help us! By donating their time or goods. We need roofing, stables, fencing, feed, hay, lighting, timber, business supplies! Whatever your company can offer we can use it to help rebuild this amazing place that is saving animals lives!…thank you from the bottom of mine and the animals hearts.”

Hopefield Animal sanctuary is home to hundreds of rescued animals. According to their website “horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, geese, ducks, cats and more” call Hopefield home. “Hopefield is unique in its mission to provide a ‘home for life’ to all of its resident animals. The sanctuary provides a safe haven to animals that need it, offering neglected and unwanted animals the life they deserve; free from fear and harm.” If you would like to help by donating, you can do so here: How to Help.
