Hundreds gathered at Longlevens Rugby Football Club to enjoy the music and cider festival for the Summer Hollie Day that was hosted by the Hollie Gazzard Trust.

Following the death of Hollie in 2014, The Hollie Gazzard Trust was formed to work with young people to reduce domestic violence by introducing programmes about domestic abuse and highlighting what are healthy relationships by talking to young people in schools and colleges.

Hollie’s father Nick Gazzard said: “We were delighted at the turnout for the Summer Hollie Day at Longlevens RFC. It was a fantastic day with a large selection of food to go with the cider festival. We were again blessed by the weather.

“We would like to thank Longlevens RFC for holding the event and especially to Chris Yorke for organising.

“A great day was had by all. Due to the success of the event, we will be looking to replicate next year when we hope to make it even bigger and better.”

The event brought many people together to remember Hollie as it was her birthday on July 24.

People came together to share memories that they had of her along with enjoying the cider and music that was there on the day.

Nick said: “It is important that we celebrate Hollie’s birthday because while she is no longer with us she is still or daughter and it is an opportunity for the family to remember the good times that we had with her, what she was like and share memories.”

Hollie was murdered by her ex-boyfriend Asher Maslin, from Cheltenham.
