On 17th & 18th February 2023 we are offering FREE 30 min workshops at Gloucester Cathedral on how to download and use Hollie Guard.
This is part of the campaign which sees the Knife Angel come to Gloucester in February on its National Anti-Violence Tour. The structure is made from over 100,000 bladed articles seized by police across the UK, and weighs 3.5 tonnes, and has been created to remember those lost to knife crime. Its arrival in Gloucester will be backed up by a month-long series of events, workshops and other activities across the city involving a range of organisations and people of all ages and backgrounds.
The Hollie Gazzard Trust are supporting the City’s partnership work to raise awareness of the impact of serious violence. The charity will be at the monument on the 17th and 18th February to provide information to the public and deliver free HollieGuard workshops.
Both days will be dedicated to raising awareness of Violence Against Women and Girls and Schools, residents and local businesses, will be encouraged wear purple to remember Hollie and all those have lost their lives to violence. The Gloucester Cathedral itself will be lit up in purple lights, along with Gloucester’s King Square to commemorate the event.
