The Cullum Family


Peter Cullum was formerly a director of London & Edinburgh Group based in Worthing until 1991. He is now an entrepreneur in the UK insurance sector and has built the largest independently-owned insurance group in Europe and second largest worldwide. In 2006, he established the Cullum Family Fund to provide funding for a small portfolio of charitable causes. “We created the Cullum Family Fund driven by the desire to purposefully give something back to a number of causes that were very close to our hearts,” says Peter. “I had achieved considerable business success and was therefore determined to support my chosen charities and also our local communities. We were impressed by Kevin Richmond and his small team’s determination to provide invaluable support and funding to local community groups in and around Sussex.” Peter is pictured here with his two daughters, Claire and Abi who work closely with us to oversee the Fund. “We are very proud of our association with Sussex Community Foundation and the whole experience has been highly rewarding and helps us to make a difference to the lives of those who face real challenges in what is often an unsympathetic environment.”
