Waveney Memorial Park and Crematorium, which opened in November 2015, is based in Ellough, Beccles, serving the local community and beyond.
As part of their commitment to the community they have been privileged to make donations to, primarily Suffolk based, bereavement charities.
Gillian Hyde, manager of Waveney Memorial Park and Crematorium said “Our aim, to provide exceptional care and compassion for families in the community where it is needed most, is shared by East Coast Hospice and we have decided to make our donation to them for £8,000 to enable the build to progress as soon as possible to be able to support families at need in our local community.
The donation has been raised through a charitable scheme, operated by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM), of which Waveney Memorial Park and Crematorium is a member. Under the scheme metal from medical implants is recycled after cremation, with the consent of the family of the deceased. Twice a year the institute asks its members to nominate local charities, which help to support people to cope with the death of loved ones, to receive a donation.
