North West Norfolk MP, Henry Bellingham, has signed up to support this year’s WWF Earth Hour by making a pledge to help protect the planet.

Every year Earth Hour inspires millions of people around the world to come together and switch off their lights for one hour in a symbolic act to show they care about our brilliant planet.

Mr Bellingham said: “Our natural world is precious to all life that inhabits it, but we need to do more to protect it. WWF’s Earth Hour reminds us that there are simple things we can all do for the planet, not for just one hour, but every day. It’s a great opportunity to bring together millions of people from across the world with one united goal - to help protect our planet.

“That’s why this Earth Hour I’m showing I care about the future of our planet by making a special pledge for a low carbon future.”

Jennifer Clements, of WWF, said: “By taking one simple step to switch off your lights at 8.30pm on 19 March, Earth Hour is a chance for all of us to come together and send out a global message about protecting our planet.”
