About us Who we are Patrons Victoria Milligan Victoria Milligan’s life was turned upside down in 2013 by a tragic speedboat accident in Cornwall. Her husband, Nick, and their 8-year-old daughter, Emily, were killed, Victoria had to have her leg amputated below the knee, and the couple’s other children – Amber, then 12, Olivia, 10, and Kit, 4 – were injured. In 2014 Victoria organised The Milligan Bike Ride, pulling together a team of 125 cyclists to complete a gruelling 300-mile ride from Padstow to London, culminating in ‘Emily’s Fun Day’ in memory of her daughter. This has raised over £500,000 which has been split between RNLI and Child Bereavement UK. I am proud to be a patron of Child Bereavement as they helped me rebuild trust in life again and held my hand through the dark days of grief, constantly reassuring me that I was doing well and advising me on how to speak to the children.
