Search is on to find heroes
PEOPLE in Oban are being encouraged to nominate themselves or others for the Earth Hour Heroes competition.
The initiative is searching for individuals who deserve recognition for going the extra mile to help the environment and inspire others, whether at home, in the community or in the workplace.
The competition is part of Earth Hour, which takes place at 8.30pm on Saturday March 25, 2017.
It is the largest global celebration of the planet, when millions of people around the world switch off their lights for one hour to show their support for action on climate change.
To enter the Earth Hour Heroes competition, go to www. wwf.org.uk/ EarthHourHeroes and say why you or someone you know deserves to be an Earth Hour Hero in one of the following categories: community hero, lifestyle hero and workplace hero.
Shortlisted entries will be invited to attend an exclusive event at the Palace of Westminster on March 7, 2017, where a winner for each category will be announced.
The winners will receive £1,000 each, thanks to the support of players of People’s Postcode Lottery, to help towards boosting their Earth Hour Hero initiatives.
The deadline for entries is Friday, December 16.
