Ambassador, Hep C and HIV Community Advocate, Colleague, Friend

It is with great sadness that we note the passing of Malcolm Leech at 12:35am on Friday 20 September from cancer at the Sacred Heart Hospice, Darlinghurst, age 57.

Malcolm made a significant contribution in many areas of life, including theatre and community.

He was a strong advocate for people living with HIV, a positive speaker, and Director, Secretary and past President of Positive Life NSW (2006 to 2012).

Malcolm also served on the Board of the Bobby Goldsmith Foundation from 2008–2010 and a variety of community theatre boards, including being a founding member of the Carriageworks Board.

Malcolm will be very much missed by the Board and Staff of Positive Life NSW. Our thoughts go out to Malcolm’s friends and loved ones at this time.
