She was on the red carpet in London the night before, but Leona Lewis made a quick change into hardier clothes and stopped by the Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood, England.
As a patron of the sanctuary, the singer paid a visit to help raise financial support for the sanctuary’s property – but she didn’t stop there. Lewis hung out with and helped feed horses, rabbits and goats!
Looking every bit like the animal lover she is (the X-Factor winner is a vegetarian as well), Lewis devoted special one-on-one time to a blind bunny named Raffles and two white horses named Sam and Hope.
Lewis broke out into a laugh when it came time to feed the goats – the feisty creatures weren’t shy about getting their breakfast!
