David Hallmark

Solicitor and Governor

David Hallmark has been the hospice’s legal advisor for the last three decades and can take the credit for turning St Richard’s into a charitable organisation in its early months. David believes the success of the hospice is down to a few key factors. These include thoughtful ‘succession planning’ and the recruitment of the right people to the right jobs (from inspirational and compassionate medical staff to experienced and tenacious administrators). David has also been involved with many fundraising activities, particularly the Worcestershire Woman of the Year, the annual golf tournament and various other events in the cathedral. He is proud of being part of the hospice team which he calls ‘a big family’. The patients, he says, are the glue that keeps the family together.
