Bramcote Crematorium raises £10,000 for local charity

15/06/21 - Bramcote Crematorium has raised over £10,000 for a local bereavement charity thanks to its recycling scheme.

Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide is the only organisation offering peer-to-peer support to all those over the age of 18 impacted by suicide loss in the UK. They help those bereaved by suicide to support each other, at the time of their loss and in the months and years that follow. They are a self-help organisation and provide a safe, confidential environment in which bereaved people can share their experiences and feelings, so giving and gaining support from each other. They strive to improve public awareness and maintain contacts with many other statutory and voluntary organisations.

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.

Louise Singer, Bereavement Services Manager at the Crematorium said; “Bereavement is a very difficult time so it’s fantastic to see something positive to come from it and support others who are a similar position. Thank you to all the families who supported the scheme and have helped us raised this fantastic amount for Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide.”

Over £8 million has been donated to charities since the national scheme began and this year a record amount of £1 million pounds is due to be donated in the next round of recycling nominations.
