A multi-million pound fundraising effort to build a new palliative care facility in Norfolk has received a £10,000 boost.
Breckland Crematorium made its generous donation to the Priscilla Bacon Hospice, set to be built next to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital in years to come.
Breckland Crematorium raised the funds by recycling metals following cremations.
Traditionally metals were buried in crematoria grounds, but guidelines changed in recent years to allow them to be recycled.
Hugo Stevenson, head of fundraising for Priscilla Bacon Hospice, said: "We'd like to thank Breckland Crematorium for nominating the charity, and all the families who gave their consent to collect metals.
