A former office worker has given up her day job to follow her passion as an environmental campaigner.

Heidi Loxley left her job to set up Fire of Caron, a project to support eco efforts through music, which she runs from her home in Darrington.

She is using her songwriting talents to sell music to raise money for her campaigns.

Miss Loxley said: “I want to try and raise awareness, by campaigning about the environment and the bad things we have been doing to it over the years.

“This includes felling of trees, flooding, population issues and many others.”

Fire of Caron, which is also the name of Miss Loxley’s band, aims to change the way people view nature so the environment can be protected.

She said: “The problem is there are lots of people doing environmental campaigning and not really getting anywhere so I decided to use my skills for song writing to help raise money.”

Since starting the project in January, Miss Loxley has written and produced three songs, with a fourth on the way. She hopes to donate some of the money to other enviromentally-friendly charities.

She said: “I believe if we don’t act now and start to make changes we will be sorry.

“We are already seeing the devastating effects of the flooding and this is just one of the things that is going to get worse.”
