Crematorium Recycling Scheme Raises Over £4,000 for Children's Charity

11/08/2016 - Local charity Rainbows Hospice has benefited from a £4444.00 boost thanks to Bramcote Crematorium's Recycling Scheme.

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.

The money was donated to Rainbows, which provides care and support from life-limited children and their families.

"This scheme is a prime example of the fantastic work of the Crematorium's professional and caring Bereavement Services Team. This scheme can help make such a difference to the children that Rainbows Hospice supports in what are undoubtedly very difficult circumstances for bereaved families said Councillor Richard Jackson, Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council and Chair of the Bramcote Bereavement Services Joint Committee"
