Antoinette Sandbach, MP for Eddisbury, has pledged her support for the World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour

The 'hour' is the world’s largest annual event which inspires millions across the world to take action and make a pledge to protect our brilliant planet.

Ms Sandbach joined more than100 fellow MPs on Wdnesday to show their support for Earth Hour ahead of the global lights out event on Saturday, March 30 at 8:30pm.

“Earth Hour gives a voice to people everywhere who want to raise awareness of some of the biggest environmental challenges we are facing," she said.

"I hope that by adding my voice for the planet I can encourage my constituents to do the same.”

MPs pledged their #VoiceForThePlanet to send the message that it is unacceptable to sit back and watch the destruction of nature, and to help inspire their constituents to make their voice heard this Earth Hour, by choosing to change something in everyday life that will help protect our planet.

In the UK, every year millions of people take part in Earth Hour, joining hundreds of millions more around the globe, including some of the world’s biggest landmarks – such as Australia's Sydney Opera House, New York's Empire State Building, Paris's Eiffel Tower, and Buckingham Palace and Edinburgh Castle in Britain – switch off lights as a visual display of their commitment to our planet.
