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.
