The £10,000 donation was presented to us from the proceeds of the crematorium’s recycling scheme, which enables metals from cremated remains to be safely recycled. The metal recycling scheme is run by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM) and is only carried out with the consent of the bereaved.
Chair of North Devon Crematorium Joint Committee, Councillor Helen Walker, says: “We are delighted to be able to present this year’s donation to the Calvert Trust Exmoor, which enhances the lives of people with disabilities and their families. Like other charities, the Calvert Trust has been hit hard by Covid-19 and we are happy that the metal recycling scheme has enabled us to contribute to their recovery.”
Income Generation and Communications Manager, Hannah Furber says: “The very generous donation from the North Devon Crematorium has gone towards our Birthday Appeal total. Every pound helps provide our guests with a wonderful break, from buying accessible activity equipment, to feeding the horses, to maintaining the centre. Our biggest thanks go to the ICCM Metals Recycling Scheme and the crematorium for their support.”
