With its latest donation Mintlyn Crematorium will have contributed £82,123 to local charities. Nationally the project has raised £6.5 million for charity.
The money has been raised through a charitable scheme, operated by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM), of which Mintlyn is a member. Under the scheme metal from medical implants is recycled after cremation, with the consent of the family of the deceased. Twice a year the institute asks its scheme members to nominate local charities, which help to support people to cope with the death of loved ones, to receive a donation.
Tammy Green, Senior Fundraising Manager at The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House, said: “We are exceptionally grateful to Mintlyn Crematorium for choosing to support us, this incredible donation of £8000 will go directly towards helping us continue to provide specialist care and support to patients and families.
“The Hospice, which is a charity, relies hugely on the generosity of local supporters and this donation from the Mintlyn Crematorium is truly valued.”
Cllr Paul Kunes said: “Over £82,000 has been raised by Mintlyn Crematorium in the last 8 years for many worthy local causes. I’m delighted to be presenting this cheque to Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House.”
