John Cullen Memorial Fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer Care & Research


In what has now become an annual event, Michelle Cullen, her family and friends, particularly Barry Spillane, organised a series of golf related events to raise money for Pancreatic Cancer care and research.   These are in memory of Michelle’s late husband John.

Adding an international dimension the activity was conducted in Scotland as well as Ireland.

The enormously successful programme which included a raffle and social events, raised €3,247.83 which was donated to St. Vincent’s Hospital.  In addition, the £2,000 raised in Scotland was contributed to pancreatic care there.

In total this group of supporters has now raised over €10,000 for Pancreatic Cancer in St. Vincent’s.

We are delighted to quote Michelle’s own comments in relation to this activity:

“A huge thanks to everyone who donated and supported John Cullen Memorial Golf Classic. This year we raised a total of €3,247.83 in Ireland and in Calderbraes Golf Classic where the golf classic took place, they raised £2000 with brilliant spot prizes and raffle on the night. We had a great day and night, plenty dancing and laughter.

 As everyone knows your generosity means so much to me and my family and funds are put towards Pancreatic Cancer Research, in particular research to help in early detection so as to stop so many people dying from this awful cancer……”
