Atherton Crematorium - ‘in memoriam’ donation

10 August 2012

Atherton Crematorium has again made a generous donation to Wigan & Leigh Hospice of almost £1,600.

Crematorium Manager Sandra Waldeis said, "We are delighted to again support Wigan & Leigh Hospice because of the excellent work they do.  Part of the money was from an 'in memoriam' donation. The balance is the proceeds from unwanted metal and orthopaedic implants from families who have agreed.   It is a very sensitive subject, but we hope that bereaved relatives can take some comfort knowing that the money will be used to help and support other local people."


Hospice Communications Officer Edwin Matthews said, "We would like to say a big thank you to those who have compassionately agreed to support the ongoing care of Hospice patients and their loved ones in this way: and to the Crematorium for their support."
