Purple HollieDay is the Hollie Gazzard Trust’s annual day to celebrate Hollie Gazzard’s life and takes place each year in July, Hollie’s birth month.
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. Hollie was vibrant, fun, vivacious, talented and beautiful. She is sadly missed by all who knew her.
Tragically Hollie had experienced domestic abuse and stalking prior to being fatally stabbed by an ex-partner at her place of work.
Purple HollieDay recognises the joy for life that Hollie had; we encourage you to be creative and have fun as you #GoPurple to raise funds for and awareness of the work of The Trust.
Purple HollieDay is a day for Hollie, but it is also a special day for all of us to think about how we would like to be treated in our relationships.
Purple HollieDay takes place all day on Friday 7th July 2023, in schools, colleges, workplaces and homes.
On Purple HollieDay you can join with friends, family, work colleagues or fellow students to #GoPurple and raise funds for our work to address domestic abuse and stalking.
