General information about The Clare Milne Trust:

The Clare Milne Trust provides grant funding to charities who support people living with disabilities in Devon and Cornwall. Since 1999 The Clare Milne Trust has awarded over £12million in order to transform the lives of people with disabilities.

Additional information about Clare Milne:

Clare was much loved by family and friends and was full of life despite the challenges of living with cerebral palsy. Clare was always keen to try new things and she loved to be sociable.

Clare Milne was the granddaughter of A.A Milne, the author and creator of Winnie the Pooh. In 1998 Clare received a significant sum of money following the sale of the copyright royalties from her grandfather’s books. A home was purchased for Clare and it was decided that the rest of the money should be placed in a charity to help other people with disabilities.

The Clare Milne Trust was formally set up in 1999 and the first grants were awarded in 2002.

Unfortunately, Clare died in 2012 but her legacy continues.

In the words of Clare’s late mother, Lesley Milne, “My dream is to know that my girl will be remembered for something that brings happiness where it is most needed.”

It is the aim of The Clare Milne Trust to support and improve the lives of people living with disabilities in Devon and Cornwall. The current Trustees strive to honour Lesley’s wishes and to keep Clare’s memory alive.
