Donalds Volvo Ipswich has announced it will be hosting a day of conservation activities to help the local environment.
The Donalds Group dealership, at Futura Park, Ipswich, is inviting local people to join the team for Earth Hour on Saturday March 30 for a family activities day to learn about the effects of plastics in the local environment and oceans.
The day will begin at 10am with a relaxed and informative presentation in the showroom at Futura Park in Ipswich, followed by a special reading of Volvo's brand new children's book, The Day The Ocean Went Away.
Guests will then depart with the Donalds team in a convoy of Volvo cars to a local coastline to conduct their very own beach clean.
The event aims to help educate the next generation to love and respect their environment.
The team will also be handing out #IPromise papers, giving families the opportunity to write down pledges to reduce plastic consumption in their everyday lives.
Tickets for the Earth Hour event are free, and include chauffeured transport in Volvo cars to and from the beach, and a free copy of The Day the Ocean Went Away for each family.
Donalds Volvo’s retailer principal, Dan Le Cocq, said: “The team and I are all so excited to be hosting our Earth Hour event.
“The welfare of our local environment and wildlife is really important to us so we’re hoping to see lots of people attending the event and helping us to make the coastline an even more beautiful and safe place to visit.”
