Donation to Isabel Hospice

May 17th, 2018    Author:

MD Claire Austin was thrilled to hand over a cheque for £5,000 to Isabel Hospice  this week. Isabel Hospice cares for adults with a life-limiting illness across eastern Hertfordshire.  Specialist palliative care is available to adults both at home and at the In-Patient Unit as well as at the Day Service locations. All care is free, although running costs each year are currently £4.5 million, of which £2.8 million must be raised from charitable sources.

The donation was made possible by our membership of the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM), which runs an innovate Metals Recycling Scheme.  As part of the scheme, crematoriums can have metals collected from their premises, with profits from the recycling scheme fed back so that they can donate to their nominated charity.
