John Havelock a former parishioner of St Peter and Paul Church was a member of The Healys. The band have performed together for over 40 years. In 2000 after performing for Suzy at Wakefield Town Hall they decided to give all proceeds from sales of their CDs to Suzy and to date have raised nearly £30,000. 2009 saw the end of the band’s performing days with the sudden death of Erne Parkin a band member. The money donated to The Suzy Fund at Erne’s funeral was sufficient to fund ‘Ernefest’ which supplied food for 1000 children each week for 12 months, a fitting legacy.

The group no longer perform but host an annual ‘Art for Life’ exhibition where they sell their art and crafts as well as CDs for Suzy, 2009 and 2010 exhibitions have been held in Keswick.
