Ian St John took up the role of director of golf in Rush Golf Club in 2014. In 2016 he was diagnosed with a cancerous growth on his spine. After an operation he was left paralysed and spent many months in rehab. Shortly after this his wife gave birth to their second daughter, subsequently she was diagnosed with M S. A few of us in the club raised funds for the family and after two events in the club the members, staff and friends of members raised €7565.00 for him. This money is going towards specific physiotherapy in the UK for spinal injuries.
Ian is overwhelmed by our generosity and sends his sincere gratitude to all who donated and helped in the events.
