Family and friends of Grace Millane raise a record amount for White Ribbon UK

Words: Claire Bilton (close friend of the Millane family)

On Saturday 24 August, 51 people took part in a Nuclear Charity Race in memory of Grace Millane. All of the 51 people who took part were either family/friends/family friends of Grace’s, and together raised £11,872 (Ed: the most White Ribbon UK has ever received from a single fundraising campaign) for the White Ribbon Campaign. Grace was an independent, strong and brave woman who was taken from us at the end of last year and together we all wanted to do something in her memory and raise as much money as possible for the White Ribbon Campaign, who campaign to end male violence against women.
