The Funeral of Malcolm Campbell, took place on Thursday 7th May at North East Surrey Crematorium.  Malcolm’s unexpected and untimely death on Sunday 26th April has shocked and saddened everyone who knew him.  This was evident by the sheer numbers of people (estimated to be around 400) from all walks of life, who attended the service.  


Malcolm joined Croydon Council as a Social Worker 27 years ago and he had always been an active trade unionist within the Branch, starting out as a NALGO Steward in Social Services (UNISON was formed in 1993).  He held the position of Branch Secretary for the last 10 years and was recently elected to continue in the post at the Branch Annual General Meeting in February 2009.


Malcolm, whose passion for fairness, his courage and his outrage against injustice will be hugely missed.  In the Branch he was regarded as a friend as well as Branch Secretary and was respected and well known by management and colleagues alike for his advocacy in representing both the individual and the collective.


His commitment to the Union at Branch, Regional and National level and the Trade Union movement as a whole, was never questionable.  The wisdom, knowledge and passion that he possessed in fighting unfairness was second to none. 


Thank you Malcolm for all you have done for the Branch and the members you represented – we will miss you more than words can say.
