The Luton based charity, Home Leone, aims to help people in Sierra Leone’s slums get rehoused and transform their lives.

The money raised by the pair will help fund this mission, they have both been to the country and witnessed the way they live.

Rachel, of Wigmore, said: “Heather and I have both visited Sierra Leone this year and we have seen the scale of poverty.

“I think Home Leone are doing really important things in Sierra Leone.”
