The Hollie Gazzard Trust was created following the murder of 20-year-old Hollie Gazzard in 2014 by an ex-partner. Set up by parents Nick and Mandy, along with sister Chloe, the charity 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 – something Hollie was talented at and passionate about.

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.

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.  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. ”

Judgement

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

Tattoo

” 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. ”

Arrow

” 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. ”

Storms

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

Everyday

” 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. ”

Fair

” 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. ”

Hollie

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

 

Helping Talented Young People

We work alongside Gloucestershire College to support students that face many different challenges.

Delivering Healthy Relationship Education

We help educate young people about the importance of healthy relationships and to identify signs of potential abuse.

Raising Awareness of Stalking

Stalking is one of the most frequently experienced forms of abuse; abuse that can destroy the lives of its victims.

Tackiling Knife Crime & Anti Social Behaviour

The Trust has funded several initiatives delivering workshops in schools and other youth-related organisations.

 

Hollie Guard

Hollie Guard is a next generation smartphone app that provides enhanced levels of protection. Whether you’re working alone, travelling to an unknown area or simply commuting around town. With Hollie Guard, you can set extra levels of protection from right inside the App. As seen on BBC’s Crimewatch Roadshow.
