Remembering Olivia Burt

Olivia Burt was a gifted and beautiful young woman who inspired others, and a first-year student at University College studying Natural Sciences when she was tragically killed in February 2018. 

Olivia was just embarking on a journey that would have doubtless seen her leaving a lasting mark on our world. But more than this, everyone who knew Olivia remembers her smile and her kindness, and how she would go out of her way to help people.

Olivia Inspires, a charity set up by her parents Paula and Nigel, aims to allow her spirit to live on by helping young people in the New Forest to realise their potential. 

Olivia Inspires aims to help children and young people aged 11 to 18 years, whose families live in the New Forest District Council area and who are facing financial hardship.

Grants of normally no more than £500, will be awarded for items or services which enable them to develop their potential in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), the arts and sport.
