It was with great sadness that we learned that our good friend Peter Collins passed away at home in the early hours of Saturday morning. Peter joined the BBC in September 1998 and has been a valued member of the club over these many years and will be sadly missed.

Our sincere condolences go to his wife Valerie and daughter Maria, and members of his family

The funeral was held at the Javea Crematorium Tuesday 20th February and afterwards at the Benitachell Bowls Club where many memories from members and others were shared.

A MESSAGE FROM VALERIE COLLINS

“Dear members, friends and partners of Costa Blanca bowls clubs thank you all for your love and support at Peter’s funeral. You made it so much easier for myself and my family to be able to cope with such a sad day.

Thank you for all the cards and messages which Maria and I are still wading through.

I will be happy to sponsor the annual Dragon Insurance/ Peter Collins 4-2-2 competition in June 2018, in his memory.
God bless you all.

Love from Valerie Collins xx"
