David Collins R.I.P Funeral arrangements
It is with much sadness to announce the passing of David Collins who passed away in the early hours of 31st August 2014. David was involved in the Brigade Choir and will be very much missed. Our thoughts and prayers go to David's family and friends. Rest in Peace and Rise in Glory.
Monday 15th September at 11.30am at St Martin's Church, Main Street, Desford LE9 9JP. There will be refreshments afterwards in the Church Centre also on Main Street.
If you are able to come to the funeral there is no need to wear black - David didn't like it.
I have been asked if people can make a donation in David's memory and the children and I have decided all donations will go to the Leicester Kidney Care Appeal which will go towards research and facilities at the Renal Unit where David was treated. There will be a collection box in church at the funeral or cheques can be sent to Anstey & District Funeral Directors made out to Leicester Hospitals Charity.
