Adam Bell worked as the first Scholarships Administrator, and subsequently as an Assistant Registrar, in Academic Registry at Edge Hill University until his sudden death in July 2011 from a brain haemorrhage at the age of 27.
Adam was a delightful young man with a zest for life, a philosophy of giving to those less fortunate, and with a really promising future ahead of him.
The personal qualities exemplified by Adam are reflected in the spirit and values of this scholarship.
