Bereavement charity to hear from woman at centre of tragedy

By Cornish Times in Charity

A CORNISH bereavement charity will hear about one woman’s life after unimaginable tragedy at its annual meeting.

The guest at this year’s annual general meeting of Cruse Bereavement Care in Cornwall is Victoria Milligan, who lost her husband, Nick, and one of their four children, eight-year-old Emily, in a speedboat accident on the River Camel in May 2013.

Victoria also had to come to terms with the implications of her life-changing injuries.

Since 1982, Cruse Bereavement Care in Cornwall has helped anyone in the county who requests support after the death of someone they love. 

Forty Cruse Bereavement Volunteers travelled more than 37,000 miles to provide one-to-one bereavement support to 537 people across Cornwall during 2016 alone.

Victoria will share her experiences at the meeting which takes place at July 17 at 7.30pm at the Council Chambers, New County Hall, Truro. 

Cruse Bereavement Care’s Helpline is 01726 76100, and its website is
