Friends and teammates shaken by the news a Lincoln graduate was killed during a trip to New Zealand have set up a fundraiser in her memory.
Grace Millane, 22, was a “cherished member” of the hockey club during her time at the University of Lincoln.
In her honour, the sports club have decided to raise money for charity. Their target is £1,000.
They are raising money for Lincolnshire based cancer charity Candles and the Lucie Blackman trust who have supported Grace’s family.
On the fundraising page, they wrote a tribute to the life of Grace Millane.
It read: “Grace Millane was a beautiful young women who spent her three years at University as a cherished member of the Hockey Club.
“Upon learning the tragic news, the society have decided to raise money in Grace’s honour.
“Any support is greatly appreciated, whether that be a donation or simply sharing this campaign.”
The hockey club is also holding a friendly match at the University of Lincoln sports grounds on Wednesday, December 12.
A desperate week of searching ended in tragedy at the weekend when Grace’s body was found on the outskirts of Auckland, where she was last seen.
A man has been charged with her murder and appeared in court and will return next month.
