Knox House Trust (KHT) is pleased to announce that local charity Craig’s Heartstrong Foundation raised over £9k on Saturday 24th June at their annual dinner event.

Tickets for the event which was sponsored by KHT were quick to sell-out due to the hugely popular guest speaker for the evening, ex Liverpool and Rangers footballer, Graeme Souness.  Guests also enjoyed a 3 course meal, comedian, raffle and auction – the latter providing highly sought after sporting memorabilia.

Craig’s Heartstrong Foundation, Chairman, Paul Healey, speaking after the event said; “A big thank you to Anthony Page and the team at Knox House Trust for their generous support and kind sponsorship of our Annual Dinner.  The night raised a grand total of £9,098 which will be a great help for the charity to enable us to keep pushing on, and in making the Island a safer place.”

All proceed raised will go to the charity to enable it to continue with its free heart screenings and public defibrillator campaigns.

The Foundation was set up by the Lunt family in memory of their son Craig, a well-respected and talented local footballer who tragically died in April 2005 from a previously undetected heart defect, and offers free heart screenings for men and women between the ages of 14 and 35.
