A BRACELET is now on sale in memory of Grace Millane after she was tragically killed while travelling in New Zealand.

Now, her family, alongside her favourite jewellery brand, LL Loves, have created a bracelet in her memory to raise money for White Ribbon UK.


White Ribbon is part of a global campaign to end male violence against women, with 20 per cent of every sale going to the charity.

Miss Millane, 22, from Wickford, went missing on December 1 last year when travelling in Auckland.

Her body was found a week later.

The beloved backpacker’s death caused an international outpouring of grief, but now a group of friends of the Millane family are channelling it into something positive.

Tributes poured in for Grace following her tragic death, and the release of the Grace bracelet is the latest in a long line of fundraising efforts.

As well as the bracelet being released, 48 people including Miss Millane’s brother, Declan, will take part in a Nuclear Race Obstacle Course, in Brentwood, on August 24.

The team have already raised more than £2,000, which will be donated to the White Ribbon UK charity.

The Millane family initially contacted LL Loves, a Billericay based firm launched by Claire Cox, in the hope of creating a legacy for the Lincoln University graduate.

Mrs Cox said: “They wanted to signify the white ribbon and its meaning, but something that would last and could be worn daily.”

The ‘Grace’ bracelets are made from 925 Sterling Silver and feature the white enamel charity ribbon.

Each bracelet is priced at £30 and 20 per cent of each bracelet will go directly to the charity in Grace’s memory.

Grace’s mother Gill was the driving force of the creation and design of the bracelet.

Gill also designed the white linen pouch which comes with each ‘Grace’ bracelet.

Each pouch will feature one of Grace’s favourite quotes on the front.

A man is set to stand trial in relation to Miss Millane’s death in November, in New Zealand.

The 27-year-old man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was due to appear at court for a pre-trial meeting with the judge and lawyers from both parties to discuss any legal issues last month.

He is accused of murdering Wickford backpacker Grace Millane, 21, while she was staying in Auckland.

However the hearing was moved into chambers meaning it was held in private and media in New Zealand were unable to attend.

The man was granted an interim anonymity order meaning he cannot be identified until a judge deems otherwise.
