KT TUNSTALL LAUNCHES UK COUNTDOWN TO EARTH HOUR
Singer KT Tunstall has switched OFF the Christmas lights at Westfield London to launch the countdown to WWF’s Earth Hour, which is happening on 31 March this year.
The world-renowned singer, and Earth Hour ambassador, performed an intimate gig for fans at the London shopping centre.
Afterwards KT said: "I'm delighted to have switched off the festive lights at Westfield London to launch WWF's Earth Hour. It's such a simple, powerful campaign and it's a great feeling to be joining many millions of others around the world who care and are taking action. I really hope people feel inspired to sign up and switch off their lights on 31 March.
"I've always cared deeply about the environment and try my best to limit the impact my life and work has on the planet. It's not easy but there are simple steps and commitments you can make - and WWF's Earth Hour is a great chance to tell others what you are doing and get them to join you."
KT’s switch off also marked the launch of a UK-wide competition to find one lucky community that will lead the Earth Hour UK switch-off. The winning community will receive a £1,000 grant from official partner MORE TH>N, ensuring their event switches off with a bang.
