Jenny Bulman

St Richard’s Founder

Jenny Bulman is the inspiration behind St Richard’s. She explains that her passion to set up a hospice service in Worcestershire was the result of several things, but one of the most important was hearing a radio programme about a young women’s death in an Oxford hospice. Everything about it sounded just right. Jenny set about finding out more, visited other hospices and gathered local interest. This resulted in forming the first St Richard’s committee, raising funds through ‘snowball’ lunches and creating a small team of volunteers who could put the service into practise. Jenny steered the fledgling organisation through its first year operating from her house in Droitwich and its next two from a small terraced house in Castle Street before stepping back. She continues to be a passionate supporter of the hospice movement.
