Cynthia Spencer Hospice receive donation through metals recycling scheme

The Crematorium at Warren Hill in Kettering recently presented a cheque for £5,000 to Northampton’s Cynthia Spencer Hospice, from money received for participating in the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM) metals recycling scheme.

This takes our total to over £74,000 donated to local bereavement related charities since 2011. Some of the charities to receive donations include Cransley Hospice (our biggest beneficiary), Kettering Mind, KGH Charitable Fund and MacMillan Cancer Support, among others. 

Shirley Plenderleith, Head of Public Services at Kettering Borough Council, said:

“We are extremely proud of the impressive amount of money that we have been able to donate to local bereavement charities. Kettering’s Warren Hill Crematorium continues to provide a high quality service in a family’s time of need.”

Cllr Ian Jelley, Kettering Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Environment, said:

“We’re delighted that local charities are able to benefit from the metals recycled by Warren Hill Crematorium.”

John Helm, Fundraising Manager at Cynthia Spencer Hospice, said:

“This fantastic contribution by Warren Hill Crematorium will make an enormous difference to patients both within the Hospice and throughout the community. It will also give comfort to many families, loved ones and friends who have been bereaved and may be facing extremely difficult challenges.”

Warren Hill Crematorium & Cemeteries Team recently won Best Service Team at the APSE Service Awards, while the Crematorium was also a runner up as Crematorium of the Year at the Good Funeral Awards.
