Tower of Refuge, Ramsey Swing Bridge & Pulrose Power Station to be lit up green

Thursday 21st July 2016
The Tower of Refuge, Ramsey Swing Bridge and Pulrose Power Station will be lit green on Sunday evening to mark the Samaritans’ annual National Awareness Day. On Douglas Head will be an informal gathering open to anyone, including those touched through suicide. It will start at 8.30pm and include a memorial prayer, candle lighting and petal scatter. Samaritans Isle of Man Director Gill Porter said: ‘Raising awareness of the charity’s work is threefold. ‘First, it lets those who need someone to talk to know that we are there for them, 24/7. ‘Second, it allows us to let people know about the different services we provide. ‘And third, it helps us find more volunteers, without whom we could not deliver those services – answering calls, texts and emails, not to mention the various admin roles we need to carry out. We thank the Department of Infrastructure and Manx Utilities for their support.’
