Cumberland Infirmary staff organise events to commemorate centenary of WW1

Cumberland Infirmary WW1 display

Staff at the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle have organised a fantastic display and a series of events to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One.

The Healing Arts programme at North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust along with Julie Bowman, lead dermatology nurse, staff from across the hospital, and a host of volunteers have been working to organise a display to honour the soldiers of WW1 and to remember those from all conflicts, past and present.

They have also been working closely local organisations to highlight the enormous contribution of Cumbria’s soldiers and medics and tell their stories from over 100 years ago.

Cumbria Archives services, the Devils Porridge museum and local authors have all given their time to showcase how Cumbrians contributed to the war effort and tell the stories of brave medics and soldiers from across the region.

Susie Tate, healing arts coordinator at the Trust, said: “This has been a real team effort with staff spending their own time organising and arranging for these fantastic displays and events.

“We’ve had some really great authors come to the hospital to give talks about the local wartime effort and how the events of World War One shaped our past.

“I would like to thank everyone who contributed to these events, without them it simply wouldn’t have happened.”
