BRAMCOTE CREMATORIUM has raised over £8,000 for a local bereavement charity thanks to its recycling scheme.
Age Uk, which works to support a wide range of services that support older people from all communities and backgrounds in the city and county, last year people’s donations enabled us to help over 42,000 older people.
The Crematorium has been working with families and Orthometals as part of the scheme, which enables bereaved families to donate metals which remain after the cremation process.
Once the metals, which range from metals used in coffins to orthopaedic implants, are received by Orthometals, they make a donation based on the value of these recycled metals to charities nominated by the Crematorium.
The recycling process only takes place with full consent of the deceased’s family.
This is the Letter that has been Sent from Age Uk.
