Morris Property Sponsors the Alex Wilson Memorial Football Match

Morris Property has made a donation in support of the Alex Wilson Scholarship and Memorial Football Match which takes place annually.

This scholarship is for a student from the local Shropshire community who otherwise wouldn’t be able to access the opportunity to go to Shrewsbury School for six form education. It is a 100% scholarship and a substantial amount of fundraising has taken place over the last 4 years which has seen this amazing opportunity realised.

The football game provides the back drop to the Alex Wilson Scholarship which helps individuals to achieve their hopes and dreams and was founded by Henry Wilson in memory of his brother Alex Wilson, a former Shrewsbury School pupil, who sadly passed away in 2009.

The match provides an opportunity for all of Alex’s friends and family to come together to share memories and enjoy each others’ company. The sponsorship money that Morris donated equipped the Alex Wilson Memorial XI with shirts for the annual fixture against the Old Salopian XI.

In the meantime the fundraising efforts continue to help raise sufficient funds to keep the scholarship going for the foreseeable future.
