Hopefield Animal Sanctuary & Vegan Cafe

Yesterday, I visited Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood, Essex, England. The sanctuary has actually been open since 1983, but it wasn't on my list of sanctuaries to visit before, due to the cafe there not being vegan - which seemed incredibly confusing to me.

Supermarket Sweep – Tesco’s New Vegan Range

So I don't normally blog about supermarkets because, well, I just think there are probably more interesting things in life. But when you're vegan, it's weird how even the smallest thing like the prospect of dairy-free garlic dough balls can seem so exciting!
