The Catherine Wells-Burr Foundation began on 5th April 2013 by her family, Mum Jayne, Father Phil & Sister Leanne. They were inspired by the support they received by Victim Support Homicide Services at such a devastating time.

Catherine was murdered on the 12th September 2012. She was only 23 years old when she was killed by three Polish nationals, one of them being her boyfriend.

She was a much loved Daughter, Sister & Friend to many. Full of fun, laughter, kind, thoughtful & had an amazing smile...

Catherine graduated from Bath Spa University after gaining a First Class Honors Degree in Business Management.

The Catherine Wells-Burr Foundation aims to make small grants to families and individuals bereaved and in need of help at a difficult and devastating time through violent death by murder or manslaughter at the hands of another.

Phil, Jayne & Leanne have backed the  government's proposal for a new code for all victims to read their own V.I.S Victim Impact Statements out in court between conviction and sentencing to the perpetrators of their crime.
