The crematorium, managed by Cornwall Council, raises money for charity annually through a number of ways including the remembrance service in June, the carol service in December and the Christmas memory tree in the flower room.

The crematorium chose the Little Harbour Hospice in Porthpean as their 2017 charity, which is the one of the three hospices that Children’s Hospice South West operates. Alice Merrett, the representative from the hospice charity went to Penmount to receive the cheque.
Alice Merrett, Community Fundraiser for Children’s Hospice South West said: “On behalf of all the children and families that we support at Little Harbour I would like to thank Penmount Crematorium for their generous donation. We are currently supporting over 90 children with life-limiting illnesses along with their families so donations like this really will make a difference to the care we can offer local families.”

Susan Cannan, Bereavement Services Manager at Cornwall Council’s Penmount Crematorium, said: “The staff at Penmount selects a charity to support each December and enjoys working towards supporting that charity throughout the following year. We’re pleased to be able to donate to Children’s Hospice South West and help them to continue to do their wonderful work for children with life-limiting conditions and their families in Cornwall.”

This year Penmount Crematorium has chosen to support the Merlin MS Centre in Cornwall.
