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.

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 Gazzard Trust

We have an amazing team of volunteers known as Hollie Helpers. As our very special small Gloucestershire charity continues to grow, we have more opportunities to attend events to help let people know about Hollie's story and the work we fund.

Because of this we are looking to recruit more Hollie Helpers in the New Year. The role is varied but a large part involves speaking confidently about HGT, what we do (and what we don't), selling raffle tickets or doing bucket collections etc.

Are you are a Gloucestershire based businesses which has employer supported volunteering opportunities such as charity giving days or corporate volunteer days? These opportunities are invaluable to very small charities such as HGT. And your business stands to benefit too, through greater employee engagement, better relationships and stronger links with your local community.

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to Big Yellow Self Storage 🙏

As a small local charity, they have helped us by storing our gazebos, tables, banners, leaflets and lots more for the Hollie Gazzard Trust (which was kept in a spare bedroom).

This means all our volunteers have access to everything they need, when they need it! 😀 It's made a BIG difference.

If you're thinking of putting a few items into storage, please think... Big Yellow Self Storage Gloucester.

#HollieGazzardTrust ❤️There’s no escaping the grey days and the dark evenings. That’s why we’ve invested in energy efficient LED lighting for our exterior store signs, making sure our customers can still see us from afar, while saving on energy.
