Greater Shepparton City Council is delighted to announce the successful conclusion of the Annual 100 Lap Challenge held at the Tatura Swimming Complex. This year’s event, which took place on Saturday 24 February 2024, saw 19 enthusiastic swimmers participate, collectively raising an impressive $4,000 for the Tatura Hospital and Nursing Home.
