CRY is totally dependent on Core Funding for its
very proactive campaign.
With the exception of a
one-off grant from the Department of Health (to help fund our

important, as unless donations are identified we are unable to ensure
that they go into the appropriate Memorial Fund. You will receive
updates of your Memorial Fund several times each year.
