READ: Remembering Peter Wilkinson


Luis Arrevillagas

It is with great sadness that we were informed of Peter Wilkinson's passing earlier this week. Peter was a stalwart of the Manchester Softball Community, founding the Mossley Mayhem in 2008 and helping to welcome softballers from across the Manchester region, regardless of race, background, sexual orientation or ability. 

Luis Arrevillagas, BSUK's North West Development Manager, remembered Peter, saying, "Peter was a motivation for all of us wanting to grow sports and help people in general to have fun and be active. Peter was my first work-meeting when I joined BSUK, he was really charismatic and he only had people's well being in mind. I'm incredibly sad to have lost such a fantastic ambassador."

The Mayhem and Thunder 3 held a moment of silence and a minute's applause in honour of Peter before their game on Tuesday.
