STUDENTS did their bit to battle climate change for the love of the planet as part of Go Green Week, handing out locally sourced apples.

Charlotte Gibbs, 19, Sammy Smith, 20, and Sarah Blackwell, 20, all completing a sustainability module at the University of Worcester, handed out apples, all grown within 10 miles of the campus.

Go Green Week (February 10 to 16) is People & Planet’s annual national week of action on climate change in schools, colleges and universities. Students run a week of activities to raise awareness and demand stronger action to tackle the climate crisis.

The students also handed out chilli plants paper flowers to mark Valentines Day as as a symbol of their love for the planet.

Sammy Smith of Henwick Road, St John's, Worcester, said: "It is all about raising awareness of climate change."

Sarah Blackwell, also of Henwick Road, said: "We all picked the module because we care about the environment and we want to prevent climate change as well."

They also raised money for Save the Children with a cake sale and a raffle, raising £50.
