After a sensational debut Golf Day earlier this year, we’re pleased to share that we’ll be back at Cathedral Lodge on Friday the 16th of February 2024.
Whether you’re a current supporter of The Aftershock, or learning about us for the first time, we’d love for you to join us for an incredible day on the green as we raise awareness and funds for high-mortality rate cancers.
