The Founder of the Hollie Gazzard Trust, Nick Gazzard, was rushed to the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital on the morning of Friday 8 May after suffering a stroke.

He was taken straight into the ICU unit at the hospital and has since undergone treatment and therapy for his condition.

Alison Hook has been the chairperson for the Hollie Gazzard Trust since 2019 and said. “Nick is already starting to feel better and is now back home with his wife and family. He owes his life to the dedicated and quick action of his wife and the NHS.

“The Hollie Gazzard Trust will continue to operate as usual and will continue to support those currently suffering with domestic abuse, stalking issues and coercive behaviour.

“During lockdown there has been a spike in those contacting the trust about abuse as well as downloading the app, HollieGuard, which has recently been relaunched.

“Nick has asked us all to continue his good work and this is what we will continue to do so please get in touch if are having any problems and continue to support the trust; it is a difficult time for charities as well with little fundraising able to take place.

“Our thoughts are with Nick and his family at this time while we continue to work and support those that Nick set the trust up for.”

HollieGuard is available on operating systems: Apple and Android. For more information please visit the website www.hollieguard.com while the Hollie Gazzard Trust can be found online holliegazzard.org and on social media channels.
