The Hollie Gazzard Trust was set up following the death of Hollie while at work at Fringe Benefits & La Bella Beauty Salon, Gloucester. Hollie’s family wanted something positive to come out of the tragic loss of Hollie. Hollie’s passion was hairdressing and her family wanted to give others the opportunity that Hollie was fortunate to have and fulfill a career in hairdressing. Application was made to the charity commission and on 25 April 2014, the Hollie Gazzard Trust, a Charitable Incorporated Organization (CIO) was created. While the family are devastated and can’t change what has happened to Hollie, they hope the funds raised will help others.
The Trust will rely solely on donations from the generosity of individuals and Companies. HGT will also hold a number of official fundraising activities throughout the year. If you are interested in running your own fund raising activity, please get in touch with Emma Keeble, our fundraising manager. Emma can be contacted on:
