Bramcote Crematorium Raises £14,000 For Local Charity

23/02/24 - Bramcote Crematorium has raised £14,000 for a local bereavement charity thanks to its 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. Charlotte Harrison-Wear, Maria Hanson, Louise Singer, Clare Harlow from Me & Dee and Bramcote Crematorium

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 year, Me & Dee has been chosen as the charity. Me & Dee is a bereavement charity with a simple mission, to ensure families going through difficult and uncertain times are gifted with memories they can treasure, never losing sight of what truly matters.

Councillor Helen Skinner, Portfolio Holder for Environment at Broxtowe Borough Council, who jointly manage Bramcote Crematorium with Erewash Borough Council said: “Bereavement is a very difficult time so it’s fantastic to see something positive coming from it and supporting others who are in a similar position. Thank you to all the families that supported the scheme and have helped us raise this fantastic amount for Me & Dee Charity.”

Bramcote Crematorium has raised over £50,000 for various charities over the last four years, as part of the scheme.

As part of the national scheme, over £19,112,000 has been donated since it began and this year members have ensured that an extra £2,071,000 will be donated to worthy charities.
