The Daphne Bullard Trust was set up in 1973 on the initiative of the family of the late Mrs Daphne Bullard (1916-1971), Keeper of Worcestershire County Museum at Hartlebury Castle, “to promote the conservation of dress and textiles of all periods and their display.”
It considers applications from small museums and smaller organisations seeking grants to support work in the conservation of dress and textiles of any period and their display. The DB Grant has been formally transferred to the Costume Society to manage with funding to support grants. The total sum available each year is approximately £1,000 and applications can be made throughout the year.
