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.
