On Wednesday 21st March, 2018, Teresa Kearney, Superintendent/Registrar, South West Middlesex Crematorium, presented a cheque for £5,000 to Surrey North Area Cruse Bereavement Care. The charity was nominated for its continued support to the bereaved.

Dorothy thanked the crematorium for the kind donation and confirmed it will be used to train volunteers who provide much needed support to those suffering bereavement.

The monies donated by The South West Middlesex Crematorium Board are a direct result of the metal recycling scheme run in association with the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM), aimed at making donations to death related charities throughout the UK.  Recycling only takes place with the written consent of each bereaved family as their needs are paramount to all the organisations involved.

Teresa Kearney said, “The Crematorium is delighted that Cruse Bereavement Care has benefitted from the ICCM recycling scheme, as the charity offers invaluable support to families at their most vulnerable time”.
