She told Ms Lamb: “I’ve never been anywhere so devastated.”

Later in the trip Sophie revealed it was the chance to make even “the tiniest difference” that motivated her to help.

“At my most depressed times I think what’s the point, but then, like today, they ask, ‘Please can we have more torches.’

“Even if I made the tiniest difference … if we can get them torches, encourage the men, then it was worth going.”
