On this page you will see the photos of 26 people who were recorded for the St Richard’s Voices project. Our aim was to interview a wide variety of people who’ve had a connection with the creation of the hospice (nurses, doctors, volunteers, administrators, governors, fundraisers, shop staff, patients and their families) to give as broad a view as possible of the past 30 years.

The interviews range in length from 45 minutes to more than 2 hours. Below we have selected a few extracts from each interview to give you a sample of the memories and experiences of each person. All you have to do is click on the photo of the person you want to listen to. This will take you to a summary of their interview and a selection of their stories. If you would like to listen to their full interview, contact the Worcestershire Record Office in the Hive. It is the guardian of the full archive of St Richard’s Voices.

We would like to say an enormous thank you to all the people who agreed to be interviewed for this project. It was a pleasure and a privilege to record their stories. We believe the whole collection of interviews is of great interest and value to St Richard’s, the wider hospice movement and Worcestershire in general.

If you would like to add your story to our collection, please get in touch with us via the contact page on this website. We would love to hear from you.
