Dedicate a star to a loved one lost this year
A CHRISTMAS tree has been put up at Loughborough Crematorium to commemorate loved ones who have died this year.
Families supported by the crematorium over the past year are invited to dedicate a star to their loved ones.
The team at the crematorium will also be making a £500 donation to Rainbow children’s Hospice charity. In all, the Crematorium and Memorial Group (CMG) will be donating about £23,000 to local charities.
Natasha Small, crematorium manager, said: “This has been another immensely challenging yea and it will be particularly hard for those who are recently bereaved.
“We hope our memorial tree offers comfort and reflection for those that have lost loved ones this year. We are more than happy to place a name on the memorial Christmas tree on behalf of those who have lost a loved one.
“Our teams continue to do everything possible to provide families with support at this difficult time and we are committed to ensuring that families are able to arrange a respectful funeral for their loved ones.”
CMG operates 46 crematoriums across England and Scotland.
