Caroline Lucas lends her support!

Tommy, Munya, Remy and Sam, our inspiring group of year 11 students from Patcham High School working in Brighton, have secured this statement from Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion:

"I am very happy to be supporting the Close the Door campaign which encourages shops to save money and carbon emissions just by closing their doors. Research from the Cambridge University proves that closing shop doors in winter reduces energy usage and carbon emissions by up to 50%. I am delighted that the campaign's first group of school pupils is from Patcham High School in Brighton. This is a wonderful example of how young people can engage with their local community to bring about change for the better."
