St Barnabas House Hospice – A charity offering help and support to local families at a critical time of need – has received a £5,000 boost thanks to Worthing Crematorium.
The Worthing Borough Council-run service donated the money after receiving funds from the national recycling scheme run by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM).
The scheme sees residual metals from the cremation process, such as those found within the coffin and orthopaedic implants such as knee and hip joints recycled in accordance to strict Environment Agency guidelines and with consent from family members.
Bereavement Services Officer, Sam Gritt (pictured), presented the cheque to St Barnabas House earlier this month on behalf of Worthing Crematorium. Kate Greening, Bereavement Services Manager, said:
“St Barnabas House is a charity close to the hearts of those working at the Crematorium. On behalf
of all the people who have kindly consented to us sensitively recycle the metals following the cremation process; we hope this contribution will enhance the lives of those using the services provided by St Barnabas House”.
