A FORMER TV presenter and author who wants to leave the world in a better place has written a song to raise awareness of climate change.

Diana Mather, who went to Stockton Lodge in Stockton Heath, has made it her mission to do as much as she can for the environment so her six grandchildren and 16 great nephews and nieces across the across the world and future generations can enjoy life to the fullest.

So, she has written the words to ‘Song for the World’ by Enviro which is based on the melody to Tower of the Bells and raises awareness of some of the issues the planet faces.

“I want to get as many people involved as possible,” Diana said.

“I’ve tried to encourage schools and community groups to make their own version of the song or make their own video, poem, play or dance.

“Anything we can do to help that and leave the world in a better place is what it is all about."

The song is on Spotify, iTunes and other platforms so any money that is raised goes towards a charity to halt extinction in some animals due to climate change.

And Diana’s song coincides with COP 26, The United Nations Climate Change Conference to be held in Glasgow from October 31 to November 12.

She hopes the song can influence action in a peaceful and fun way.

Diana, who lives in Chester, continued: “We want to put pressure on world leaders in a way that is going to be fun and in a way we can express ourselves – if we can help the environment as well, that’s a double whammy as far as I’m concerned.

“It would be amazing to get the people of Warrington on board.

"I want to show how we can help and do small things that add up.

“When it’s such a big problem you think ‘what can I do?’ But if we all do little things that will really help.”

Diana now sets groups all over the world the challenge of making their own version of the song which can be shared on social media.
