The Wagin Community Resource Centre went blue last Wednesday in support of autism research and awareness.

Partnering with Mango’s Cafe at Wagin CRC, $120 was raised fo Go Blue for Autism, as members of the public painted their hands blue for the cause.

“We had some factual information around autism, and for those who don’t know what autism is about, we were just trying to provide some information for the community,” Wagin CRC manager Mariana Tane said.

“We had a bit of an event as well, which was come in and paint your hand blue, and then made collages to hang up around the CRC. Our local cafe, Mango’s Cafe, participated in the campaign. They’ve done coffee and blue cupcakes for $7 and donated $5 from that.”
