Following the sad conclusion of the investigation of the whereabouts of Grace, University of Lincoln students pay tribute.
Grace Millane went missing in New Zealand on 1 December, with police efforts ceasing after discovering a body on the outskirts of Auckland. A man has since been charged in court with murder.
Those who knew Grace have taken to Twitter, trending the #HerLightOurLove hashtag with images of pink sunsets from all over the UK and further afield.
Kudzai Muzangaza, 2018/19 Students’ Union President, says:
“The whole University of Lincoln community is supporting the hockey team and anyone else affected by the news of Grace’s passing. Our wishes and condolences go out to Grace’s family and friends, and we ask at this time that the privacy of those closest to Grace, and Hockey team is respected as students process this past week’s events.”
Samantha Ramsay, 2018/19 Hockey President, says:
“Grace was the kind of friend you can’t sum up in a short statement. She was loyal, thoughtful and always had the biggest, brightest smile on her face. I will miss her laugh the most. Grace loved those she knew so completely and she is loved so much in return, the word family doesn’t come close to how we feel about her. As well as a fierce friend, she was an inspiration - she was a strong, funny and artful woman. She gave everyone around her strength and courage to chase their ambitions and we know that her beautiful memory will do the same.”
The University of Lincoln Hockey Team will be playing their Wednesday match this week from 2-4pm. The club have opened up an invitation for students and friends to support them at the Sports Centre astro turf in tribute to Grace.
