Former School Games captain Wilson died, aged 22, after a tragic training ground accident at Old Loughtonians in December 2015.

But his organs were subsequently donated, after he signed the donor register while at Nottingham Trent University, and have since benefitted countless people.

The Tom Wilson Memorial Fund (charitable status 1171856) has raised £28,000 so far, aiming to hit the £30,000 mark by the December 9 anniversary of his death.

The fund aims to raise money for various donor organisations, concussion research and England Hockey-related sporting charities.

Mum Lisa and sister Pippa attended as ‘Tom’s Bench’ was donated by the school for spectators to enjoy watching friends and family play the sport he loved so dearly.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
