Clare Milne Trust
The Clare Milne Trust supports disability projects in the South West. The Charity was established in 2002 by Clare Milne, who sadly died, with funds derived from her grandfather, A A Milne. Clare was herself disabled and had therefore experienced the benefits to be derived from well run hands on charities.
The aim of the Clare Milne Trust is to help smaller effective charities with good volunteer support with their work for the disabled in or close to Devon and Cornwall.
The Clare Milne Trust support:
Organisations in the South West, mainly in Devon and Cornwall.

Penlee Family Project - Portreath Pantry
The Clare Milne Foundation awarded £940 to the Portreath Pantry to purchase a Thermomix, a mobile cooking device that gives step by step instructions with pictures. The Portreath Pantry are a monthly community cafe who are run by a group of adults with mental health challenges, adults with learning difficulties and volunteers. The Thermomix has helped the cafe to generate an income to support the group's activities.
“My husband and I are in our mid to late 80’s, we are for our son, David who helps at the Pantry. We have been delighted with David’s progress and with the reduction of other services, he has maintained connections to this important group. We attend the soup lunches with our friends and always are made welcome by the group. We have recently been to the no cost Christmas event, the Pantry are an important part of the community and all who attend, find a smile and quality food.”
