Remembering Trixie Hart

Trixie Hart was just 16 when she took her own life. The aspiring actress and singer had been bullied online by fellow students and even adults. Trixie had battled both depression and anxiety.

Tonight on February 5, a host of comedy stars will remember Trixie’s life. The one-off gala will raise awareness and funds for Papyrus, the national UK charity dedicated to preventing young suicide – the leading cause of death in young people under 35.
