As Hollie’s mum, Mandy Gazzard is totally devastated by the loss of her daughter who was also one of her closest friends. While Hollie was living at home they spent a great deal of time together and her sudden and traumatic death has left Mandy with a gaping wound in her heart that time can do little to heal. Despite her profound loss, Mandy is determined that something positive should come out of the shocking tragedy that separated her from her daughter in February 2014 and is committed to the Trust, often working behind the scenes, as well as attending all events run by HGT and those of its supporters.
