I WANT to call on all those who care about the environment to do their bit locally by volunteering in the CSV Action Earth campaign, supported by Morrisons.

Last year more than 15,500 people across the country volunteered to give a boost to their local environment by collecting 7,000 bags of litter, planting 4,000 trees and cleaning the equivalent of seven kilometres of rivers.

The campaign is even making £50 grants available to help kick-start 900 “green” projects throughout Britain. To sign up your project and be eligible for a grant visit www.csv.org.uk/actionearth
