Like his father, John always had an enduring passion for the business; particularly the long held establishment of significant employment in Portadown in keeping with the company’s place in the community.
The trust fund actively seeks opportunities to support local organisations, particularly those working in the areas of mental health and depression. We were delighted that the trust recently pledged funding to AMH. The funding will be used to help support 2 of our projects in the Portadown area; AMH New Horizons and AMH MensSana.
Colin Loughran, AMH Service Manager commented,
“Everyone in AMH would like to thank Ulster Carpets and the Trustees of the John Wilson Memorial Trust for their kind generousity and support of our work. The funding will be used to resource our training suite at Tannaghmore Gardens on the outskirts of Lurgan with modern IT equipment and enable essential poly tunnel repairs to be carried out in addition to refurbishment of the glass house ventilation system. The trust has also pledged significant funding to AMH MensSana which will secure a full time staff post for the next two years and enable planned and necessary work to continue.”
