Kyle’s Wish to Walk

Congratulations to Lila & John Purcell for organising a wonderful quiz night in the Club House on Friday 1st February 2019, to help raise funds for’ Kyle’s Wish to Walk’. There was fantastic turnout by members and family & friends to support this worthy cause. The atmosphere was one of excitement, fun and shared enthusiasm to raise as much funds as possible to help Kyle achieve his wish to go to the USA for surgery to enable him to walk.

During the evening the room fell silent as we watched a video of Kyle’s journey and witnessed his wonderful spirit, courage, strength and determination to succeed in every challenge life has given him which he did with a wonderful smile and a fantastic support team.

At the end of the evening John announced that the Club had raised €8,383 which was amazing. Then Kyle’s parents – Rory & Janine took to the stage to advise us that two Club members, who wished to remain anonymous, had kindly donated the remaining funds to meet their target of €100,000 to take Kyle to the USA. The room erupted and stood to their feet in applause. It was a wonderful moment knowing that Kyle’s Wish to Walk had reached their target and would be travelling to the USA. Kyle’s parents where overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity and as Kyle’s dad so eloquently said “It takes a Village” and Ashbourne has been that village in its support for Kyle and we in Ashbourne Golf Club are proud to be part of that Village.
