A total of £14,000 is set to help stroke patients in West Norfolk thanks to Mintlyn Crematorium.
It is part of a scheme where metal from medical implants is recycled after cremation providing the person’s family agrees.
The money raised can then help a good cause in the area, and the Stroke Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital will benefit.
It will help people who have had a stroke have access to the care and treatment they need.
Bal Anota, the borough councillor responsible for Property and Corporate Services, said: “Staff on the stroke ward at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital do incredible work to help patients who have had a stroke to get the support and rehabilitation they need. The team on this ward really do change peoples lives for the better and I’m pleased that this donation can help them with their vital work.
“Mintlyn Crematorium has now donated more than £160,000 to support charities through this charitable scheme and I hope people who are bereaved take comfort from that.”
Karon Strong, Head of Nursing (Medicine) at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, said: “This £14,000 donation is hugely welcome and will help our clinical teams to enhance patient care for stroke patients on West Raynham ward as well as the support we provide to families and carers. Generous donations like these make all the difference, so we are very grateful.”
