Fundraising night in memory of Malcolm

Posted on Monday 3rd August 2015
Malcolm Moses fundraiser

Staff at the Cumberland Infirmary have raised over £1,000 in memory of a former patient who was himself a generous fundraiser for the hospital.

Malcolm Moses, of Carlisle, was a regular patient at the hospital for more than 20 years until his death in November 2014, and was well known and loved by many staff.

Over the years Mr Moses raised thousands of pounds for cardiology, dermatology and renal services at the Cumberland Infirmary, organising fundraising evenings with music and bingo in the city.

Rachel Eastham, sister on the Coronary Care Unit (CCU), explained the affection felt for Mr Moses. “Malcolm was such a character, we all knew him and cared about him,” she said. “He organised several charity events to raise money for the hospital, so on the day of his funeral, we all agreed that we wanted to do something in his memory.”

Rachel and her colleagues from CCU organised a charity night at Harraby Catholic Club on 2 July, with a disco, raffle and ‘human bingo’, attended by Malcolm’s sisters Kathleen and Marilyn Moses and Ann Armstrong.

The event raised £1,111, which the team and Malcolm’s family have agreed will go towards refurbishing the staff room on CCU.

Kathleen Moses said: “I would like to thank everyone at the hospital for the care Malcolm received over the years, and the kindness everyone showed him. We were so touched that the cardiology staff arranged this event in his memory.”

Kathleen plans to continue her brother’s charity work and intends to hold another fundraising evening next year in his memory.
