Charities benefit from recycling recovered metals
Our recent speakers were Rotarian Alan Jose and colleague James Brown. They revealed how through their company, Westerleigh Group, which operates Crematoria, the metals recovered from the cremation process are recovered, and sent to the Orthometals company which sorts and sells them. The resulting profit is redistributed to charity.
99% of relatives give their consent for this process.
Some £500,000 every year is distributed by Westerleigh from this source. Indeed, The Rotary Club Of Ashford Kent recently received a generous donation of £2,000 for the Charity Fund. They also donate to Huntington's Disease research.
