Hollie Gazzard Trust
The Trust was created following the murder of 20-year-old Hollie Gazzard in 2014 by an ex-partner. HGT helps reduce domestic abuse and stalking through creating and delivering programmes on both issues 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.
