Instead of emailing this letter, I thought I would post it on here and encourage all who read to get involved!
Save the planet and ENJOY MORE SUNSHINE!!! :-)
As you may know, there is a proposal before parliament to move the UK’s clocks forward by one hour throughout the year, effectively taking an hour of daylight from the early morning and moving it to the evening, when more people are awake to enjoy it.
I’m writing to ask if you could join me in supporting Lighter Later, the national organisation campaigning for this change.
Adopting the proposal could save 80 lives a year on Britain’s roads, boost our economy by £2.5 – 3.5billion annually and improve general health and well-being. You can find a fully-referenced list of benefits below or at www.lighterlater.org/benefits.html.
Lighter Later is supported by a 60-strong coalition of organisations including everyone from the FA and SAGA to London Zoo, the Tourism Alliance and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.
We could really benefit from an extra hour of evening light, and all make a real difference by joining the Lighter Later coalition and speaking out in favour of the change.
If this is of interest, please do let me know. Alternatively, you can contact Lighter Later direct for answers to your questions and to discuss next steps – just email email@example.com.
In the meantime, you can find more information on the website –www.lighterlater.org.
