Test Valley Crematorium, operated by the Westerleigh Group, have donated a whopping £5,000 to Naomi House & Jacksplace, which was raised through the Group’s metal recycling scheme.
With the consent of families, metals recovered during cremation are recycled and any money raised at each of the 34 crematoria and cemeteries nationwide, operated by Westerleigh Group, are used to support local charitable causes.
Robert Metcalf, Site Manager at Test Valley Crematorium, said:
We at Test Valley Crematorium are honoured to be able to donate £5,000 to support Naomi House & Jacksplace, who do such fantastic work in the community to support children, young adults and their families.
Like many charities, the hospices usually receive some much-needed funds from their shops in the area, but this has been badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. We hope our donation will go some way in making up for what the charity has missed out on this year, and will help it to continue to do its vital work.
Robert met with Pete Abrahams from Naomi House & Jacksplace to officially present the cheque and find out more about the work being done at the hospices.
Pete, Head of Supporter Services, said:
We’re hugely grateful for this wonderful support, particularly in these challenging times. Thank you so much to Robert and everyone at Test Valley Crematorium and Westerleigh Group for your continued support.
