In June 2019 Waveney Memorial Park and Crematorium donated £8000 to East Coast Hospice to help “Raise the Roof” of the Margaret Chadd House.
This donation has been made possible by a charitable scheme run by the ICCM (Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management). 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 bereavement charities who would benefit from this donation.
This year, Waveney Memorial Park and Crematorium are happy to have been able to make a donation to this worthwhile cause.
East Coast Hospice was born out of the need to change the palliative care available for the people of Great Yarmouth & Waveney.
Margaret Chadd House is the most important medical establishment to be built in the East Norfolk/East Suffolk area for many years.
