We are open Monday to Friday between 9.00am – 5.00pm. Isle Listen is not a crisis service and only offers planned interventions. Should you or someone you know be in need of immediate support outside of our office hours you should contact Manx Care’s 24 hour Crisis Response and Home Treatment Team on 01624 642860 or the Emergency Services on 999.

Pull a truck in the fastest time to win!

As a team of 4, pull together to remove the stigma surrounding mental health.

About the event

In conjunction with the Douglas Carnival on Saturday 23 July 2022, we’re asking teams of 4 people to pull a 14 tonne Island Aggregates Isle Listen-branded concrete mixer along a short course from Quids Inn on Loch Promenade to the Harris Promenade Roundel at the Sefton Hotel, in the quickest time to win!

From colleagues, sporting clubs, gyms or groups of friends, this challenging event is open to all, and by taking part, you will be enabling our charity to continue supporting the mental health of our Island’s young people in schools and the community!

Event entry fee is just £250. Set up a team Just giving page and as soon as you hit £250, you will unlock your free team entry. Go to: www.justgiving.com/campaign/islelistentruckpull
