Huge thanks go to Treswithian Downs Crematorium for their fantastic donation of £5160.00.  We are incredibly grateful for their kindness.

Gemma Manning, Crematorium Manager said:

“We are very proud to support such charities that use the funds to support people at a time of need and we thought your organisation due to the nature of what you do, was an appropriate donation to make. We hope the funds can go to continuing your excellent work that you do for bereaved families across Cornwall.  We thank our families to allow us to recycle the metals in the way we do that then allows us to donate to such worthwhile charities and was a pleasure to present you with such a donation as we did.”
