ANIMAL lovers across Renfrewshire are being asked to help make the WWF’s Earth Hour 2011 event the biggest and best yet.
Bosses at the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) are looking for Buddies to support the annual event, which has already attracted support from people across the globe in 128 countries and territories.
For the past four years, Earth Hour has grown into the world’s largest event in support of people and wildlife threatened by climate change.
You may remember seeing pictures of iconic landmarks in Scotland and around the world switching their lights off in support of the campaign.
This year’s event will be held on Saturday, March 26, so there is still plenty of time to get involved.
Dr Richard Dixon, director of WWF Scotland, said: “I’d like to ask Paisley Daily Express readers if they will help us to make WWF’s annual Earth Hour event the biggest and best ever.
“With your help, I know we can ensure that action to tackle climate change continues long after the Hour is over.”
Last year, people across the world, from all walks of life, turned off their lights and came together in celebration of the planet.
In Scotland, 300 schools and over 200 businesses, organisations and community groups supported the big switch-off.
People celebrated Earth Hour with candle-lit meals, topical film screenings, torch-lit walks, pub quizzes and even a round of night golf.
Bosses at the WWF are hoping to see even more fun and innovative ideas this time around.
