Julia English was randomly selected from the hundreds of people who pledged their participation in Earth Hour 2014 to choose a local charity of their choice to receive $1000 from Nelson Hydro and Julia chose the BC SPCA (Nelson Branch). 

Rob Andrew was thrilled with the donation and said “Environmentalism and sustainability go hand in hand with animal welfare and protection, so Nelson Hydro’s Earth Hour initiative was very popular with our volunteer base.

This donation represents a very significant “on the ground” difference for a small branch like ours. Thank you to all of the volunteers who participated, to Nelson Hydro for their creativity and to Julia for choosing us.”

Nelson Hydro would like to thank all of the people who participated in Earth Hour 2014 and who always do their part in being a champion of the environment.
