Mr Paul Healey BEM

Mr Paul Healey is chair of established Manx charity, Craig’s Heartstrong Foundation, originally set up by the Lunt family in memory of their 25 year old son, Craig.

Craig was a well-respected, popular and talented Manx Footballer who tragically died in April 2005, due to a previously undiagnosed heart defect.

Mr Healey was a close friend of Craig and has since worked tirelessly raising funds and working within the community for the Foundation, resulting in defibrillators being extensively and freely available across numerous organisations and public spaces throughout the Isle of Man.

For approximately 15 years, Mr Healey and Craig’s mother Paula Lunt, have enabled 8,500 people through the Foundation, to be screened which has identified more than 600 people with heart defects.

Mr Healey continues to fund raise through online auctions of sporting memorabilia as well as using social media to highlight the importance of heart screening and defibrillators.

Together with other activities, Mr Healey has enabled in excess of £1 million to be raised for the Foundation. 

Paul Healey has been awarded the BEM in Her Majesty the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2022, for services to the Island through Charity Fundraising.
