Go Bright for Cruse

On Friday 4 December 2020, we’re holding an island-wide dress down day to raise valuable funds for Cruse Bereavement Care Isle of Man.

Who can join in?

Absolutely anyone! We welcome companies to colleges, schools to social groups,  friends to families, homeschooling groups to hobbyists - everyone and anyone is welcome to Go Bright for Cruse - including pets!


When do I join in?

Go Bright for Cruse will be taking place on Friday 4 December, if this works for you, but you can hold it any day that suits you and the people you’re taking part with. It’s the taking part that counts!


What do I need to do?

There are just three easy steps — we like to keep things simple!

1. Let us know that you're taking part, so we can advertise your participation over social media (if you'd like). You can let us know by emailing us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or via our Facebook event page.

2. Share any photos you have on social media and tag us too!

3. Let us know how much you’ve raised so we can send you a thank you e-certificate for your valuable support.


How much does it cost to take part?

There's no set fee for taking part — all we ask is that each person taking part makes a small donation towards Cruse Bereavement Care Isle of Man. We’ll send your team an e-certificate to say thank you for taking part, and do a shoutout on our social media for you too, so make sure you follow us on Facebook.


If you'd like to make a donation, you can do so on our JustGiving campaign page, but we'll also happily accept donations by any other means. Please contact us if you have any questions.


Why are we doing this?

It's National Grief Awareness Week from 2–8 December. Driven by The Good Grief Trust, this week-long event aims to try to normalise grief and get people talking about this typically uncomfortable subject on a national platform. Throughout this week, Cruse will be sharing stories over social media from volunteers and people they’ve supported, talking about their grief.


To mark the end of this awareness week and to join us in Go Bright for Cruse, on 8 December, the Tower of Refuge, Ramsey Swingbridge and Pulrose Power Station will all be lit up in purple from dusk.


Every penny raised will stay on the island to help us continue to offer these valuable services to anyone in our community who needs us.


Get in touch today and join us to Go Bright for Cruse!
