Buildings lit for Christmas awareness

Tower and swingbridge go green for Samaritans

Two iconic Isle of Man structures have been lit up to raise awareness of services provided by the Samaritans.

It’s hoped the move will encourage those struggling to cope over the festive period to get in touch.

Until Friday (23 Dec) the Tower of Refuge and Ramsey swingbridge will be lit up green, the charity's campaign colour. 

It’s being coordinated with the lighting up of prominent buildings across the UK, including Blackpool Tower and Liverpool town hall.

Samaritans offers confidential, non-judgmental, emotional support 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

The number is 116 123 and is free to call, or you can email jo@samaritans.org
