COUNCIL DONATES £4,444 TO HOSPICE OF THE GOOD SHEPHERD
A cheque for £4,444 has been donated by Cheshire West and Chester Council to the Hospice of the Good Shepherd in Backford, Chester.
The money has been raised through the recycling of metal retrieved by the Council's Crematorium Team, following the cremation process. The recycling scheme is run with the consent of families using the crematorium's services.
The scheme is run by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management and crematoria throughout the UK take part.
A local charity is nominated twice a year to benefit from the funds generated from the recycling. During 2015 almost £12,000 was donated to local charities in the borough.
Cllr Shore presented the cheque for £4,444 to Phil Crawford, Community Fundraiser at the Hospice, who said: "I'd like to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who nominated the Hospice to receive this money. Every donation that we receive really does help to make a difference to the people we support. It's a wonderful boost to our fund-raising."
