Position: Trustee

David Wilson was appointed to the board in November 2019.

David was born, educated and raised in Portadown, Co Armagh. He enjoyed a career in building society management in Northern Ireland and across England before the family returned to settle in Whitehead, County Antrim.

A lifelong interest in creative writing and a sponsored opportunity to develop this ability led to success as a writer in a wide range of media.

During this time David worked coordinating the press for the outbreak of foot and mouth disease, the horse meat scandal in the UK  and in more recent years the media attention around puppy farming and badger baiting.
