Albanian Earthquake

The Greater Shepparton City Council expresses its deepest sympathy for the people of Albania and those in our community whose families have been affected by this tragedy. Shepparton has a sister city Korce in Albania and our connections go back more than 100 years with the arrival of the first Albanian migrants in Australia. We have a large Albanian community in Greater Shepparton, the biggest outside of Albania.

The Shepparton Albanian Society has organised a fundraiser to support relief activities in Albania. It will be held on Sunday 1 December from 3-6pm at Central Park Recreation Reserve, Central Avenue, Shepparton East. There will be a $20 donation entry fee which includes free soft drinks. A barbecue will be operating with food available for purchase. The Greater Shepparton community will be warmly welcomed.
