Text HGTD10 £10 or HGTD05 £5 to 70070 to donate to Hollie Gazzard Trust and make a difference today. JustTextGiving by Vodafone.

The Trust was created following the murder of 20-year-old Hollie Gazzard in 2014 by an ex-partner. HGT helps reduce domestic violence through creating and delivering programmes on domestic abuse and promoting healthy relationships to schools and colleges. In addition, it funds hairdressing training for young people who may not otherwise have the funds to study – Hollie was passionate about hairdressing and HGT enables others to follow their dream.  

The Hollie Gazzard Trust also campaigns to reduce anti-social behaviour and knife crime.

The ultimate aim of the Trust is to positively change the lives of young people through partnerships in communities, as well as working alongside other charities and professional agencies.

HGT was set up by Hollie’s parents, Nick and Mandy, and her sister Chloe.

About Hollie

Hollie was a determined and successful individual, a true inspiration for others, loved, by her family and friends and highly regarded by colleagues and clients alike. A friend said: “Hollie was vibrant, fun, vivacious, talented and beautiful.” She is sadly missed by all who knew her. Read More >

Hollie's Quotes

Holz Wall

” Have hope be strong laugh loud and play hard. Live in the moment, smile often, dream big. Remember you are loved and never ever give up. ”


” Don’t judge me by my past. I don’t live there any more… ”


” Time is precious, life is a mystery. ”

'The Gym'

” Someone should open a bar called ‘The Gym.’ Then, I could be one of those annoying people on Facebook that brags about going there everyday. ”


” An arrow can only be shot by pulling it back. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming. ”


” Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains. ”


” Don’t start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday. Every day is a fresh start. Each day is a new beginning. Every morning we wake up is the first day of our new life. ”

Eyes Open

” Sometimes, opening your eyes may be the most painful thing you ever have to do. ”


” If you expect the world to be fair with you because you are fair, you’re fooling yourself. That’s like expecting the lion not to eat you because you didn’t eat him. ”

Susan Sontag

” I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list. “


” You spend too much time worrying what other people think of you… A lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinion of a sheep. ”
