A charity which creates special keepsakes for families who have lost a baby will benefit from a £5,000 donation.

The donation has been raised through a charitable scheme operated by the Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management (ICCM), of which Mintlyn Crematorium in King's Lynn is a member.

Since joining the scheme in 2011, Mintlyn Crematorium has donated more than £62,000 to local charities.

This year, staff at Mintlyn Crematorium have chosen to support the fundraising work of Theresa's Tiny Treasures with a £5,000 donation.

The charity is run by former midwife Theresa Ann McGrath, who makes bereavement mementoes for families who have lost a baby, either during pregnancy or after birth.

Ms McGrath, said: 'It is a great honour to accept this generous donation to Theresa's Tiny Treasures. It will go a long way to support families losing their longed-for baby.'
