Kirstie Carr Trustee of the Hollie Gazzard Trust.
Kirstie Carr, Board Director, and co-Head of the Private Client Department at WSP Solicitors has committed to a new role as trustee of the Hollie Gazzard Trust.
The Hollie Gazzard Trust is a UK-based charity dedicated to raising awareness and combatting domestic abuse, stalking and knife crime. The trust was established in memory of Hollie Gazzard, who tragically lost her life due through domestic abuse in 2014.
The trust works to raise awareness about domestic abuse, stalking, sexual harassment and knife crime. They aim to educate communities about the signs of abusive relationships and the dangers associated with carrying knives.
It is a truly exciting time as the charity is approaching their 10th anniversary year in in 2024, where there will be a huge calendar of fundraising events throughout the year.
In her role as trustee, Kirstie will be supporting the fantastic work the Hollie Gazzard Trust does including being a link between the charity and its ambassadors, staff, and fundraisers. As well as this, she will be able to provide her own expertise as a leader in the legal sector and company director to support the board of trustees and the strategic direction of the charity.
Of the opportunity, Kirstie said “This is such an exciting time to be getting involved with an important charity, local to WSP Solicitors, but with far reaching influence nationally. The training and education the Hollie Gazzard Trust provides is vitally important, especially from my perspective as a parent. Lots of fundraising is needed over the coming 12 months to allow the charity to continue with the great work they do”.
Nick Gazzard, Founder and CEO of the Hollie Gazzard Trust said “We are delighted that Kirstie has decided to join the Trust as Trustee and excited at the experience that Kirstie will bring as a senior leader in a well admired local solicitors practice, WSP. 2024 is an exciting year for the Trust and we hope that Kirstie will paly an important role in helping us to continue to grow and deliver the important work that we do to make our communities safer for everyone locally and nationally.”
The Hollie Gazzard Trust has made significant strides in its mission. It serves as a lasting tribute to Hollie Gazzard’s memory and is committed to making a positive impact by fostering awareness, providing support, and working to prevent further instances of domestic abuse, stalking, sexual harassment and knife crime.
