Manx girl in Children in Need feature

The moving story of a young Manx girl's experience of bereavement will be told on BBC TV's NorthWest Tonight this evening (Wednesday).

The show will feature the work of CruzKids, a group which supports bereaved youngsters through social contact and counselling. It's part of Island charity Cruse Bereavement Care and is partly funded by Children In Need.

It's being broadcast in the run-up to the BBC's annual nationwide appeal on Friday.

Tonight's film tells the story of teenager Lizzie Power from Port Erin whose sister Eleanor died six years ago at the age of just 14.

Lizzie says CruzKids offered invaluable support to help her cope with a tragic loss:
