    Story

    Malcom Swinden

    Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page .

    We have set this up to raise some money and awareness of three main charities that were close to Mal's heart following the untimely and very sad death of a true gentleman.

    Warwickshire & Northamptonshire Air Ambulance

    RNLI

    Royal Papworth Hospital Charity

    Speaking for his son, wider family and my heart, my only brother; who didn't have a bad bone in his body has sadly passed away. To say we are devastated is an understatement.

    After giving over 26 years service in the RAF followed by over 20 years in the Vehicle Inspectorate, Malcolm finally had the opportunity to follow his passion for photography, actually his third career.

    Malcolm was often found at Gymnastic Competitions, Eventing, various organised functions and at Rushden & Diamonds F.C and latterly AFC Diamonds. He loved this part of his life and was very committed (as in all his things) to get it right and never let people down. His work can be found, viewed around the world.

    Rest in peace Mal "A True Gent" you have left your mark on many x

      Struth.... Thank You everyone for your kind comments and very generous donations to Malcolm's appointed charities, Although like you I have donated to good causes on JustGiving I have never had the need to be an instigator. I chose the three as he specifically bequeathed to them in his Will. His donation together with yours will be put to good use I'm sure. Once the Covid restrictions allow I will personally pass on (equally between) his his and your donation/s and publish them on social media where I sure you will see. Thank you.. Kevin x

      In less than 24 hours we have received well over double the target I set and I would like to say a huge thank you to all who have donated. Malcolm would be very Humbled by this level of generousity & kindness, though I guess like me your not surprised. I picked the three charities as Malcolm had left them all a legacy in his will so I know its his wishes... I truly wish I wasn't here writing this and Mal was still here to guide me but it not to be. Your kind donations will be of great help to the charities and once again like to Thank You x

      Mal was a true gent, we worked together at DVSA and did photography at many venues. He got me into football photography 11 years ago which I continue to do, I have photographed all levels. My guru!
