AN ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY teacher from Leamington is doing her bit to save the planet.

Kingsley School teacher Joanne Harper has been named an ambassador for WWF’s Earth Hour.

She will be looking to inspire people to join the global event on Saturday (March 19) encouraging millions across the world to switch off their lights for one hour.

The symbolic moment aims to highlight  spotlight issues facing the planet.

She will be switching off all non-essential lights in her house at 8.30pm for one hour and hosting a candlelit dinner.

Joanne said: “The great thing about the global event is that everyone can get involved.

“We all have a key role to play and it’s critical that we join together to help protect the future of our brilliant planet. I hope that my efforts will help inspire others to join me in showing we care about the future of our planet.”

Joanne will also be hosting a candlelit Earth Hour lunch at The Kingsley School today (Thursday).
