Money raised through a charitable scheme at a Norfolk crematorium will help children cope with the loss of a loved one.

Cromer Crematorium presented Norfolk-based child bereavement charity, Nelson’s Journey, with a cheque for £1364.95.

The donation was raised through a scheme operated by Westerleigh Group, of which Cromer Crematorium is a member.

Under the scheme all metal, including medical implants, is recycled after cremation, with the consent of the family of the deceased.

Crematorium manager Sam Dellbridge said: “We hope this donation helps them to continue to provide that much-needed support for children who are facing such difficult circumstances.”

The money will pay for five children and young people to attend a therapeutic residential weekend, and Gena Moore, corporate marketing and funding officer for Nelson’s Journey, said, “This will go a long way in the help and support we can provide to children and young people in Norfolk.”

I must say that I was very sad to hear of the proposed replacement for the Splash in Sheringham by the council. I’m not sure the council fully appreciates what draws visitors to the centre in the first place.
