In memory of…
We often get asked why there is a ‘W’ in Collins W Collins, a lot of people assume it is short for ‘with’ however there is a sombre, heartfelt story behind our W. Back in 2001 James moved home to Port Macquarie to start working as a junior Designer with John Walsh at Walsh Architects. John was a well-loved local personality that James connected with immediately when he realised their mutual passion for Rugby league. In 2003, John met Derek and offered him a job if he ever decided to return to Port Macquarie with his family.
Within weeks, Derek packed up his house and family and moved back to Port Macquarie. The week prior to Derek commencing his employment with Walsh Architects, John was tragically killed in a work-place accident. Important discussions were had and big decisions were made to start a business. The next biggest decision was the name and there was no other name for us than Collins W Collins – Two Collins brothers who wouldn’t be where they are with out our W, John Walsh.
As a local business, Collins W Collins believes in supporting the community through sponsoring and assisting a number of local clubs and initiatives, including:
