AN ESK couple that helped raise awareness of autism by decorating their house blue earlier this year is calling on residents to support a fundraiser for the cause.

David and Dianne Collins have a five-year-old nephew, Luke Lockie, who suffers with autism and they have dedicated themselves to raising awareness and funds for research and assistance for families affected by the condition.

A cent auction will be held at the Lions Hall, Lawnton Showgrounds at Gympie Rd, Lawnton on December 2.

The auction will raise money for Smart Pups Assistance Dogs, to help fund an assistance dog for Luke (pictured).

For more information, phone Karen on 3881 0478 or 0400 771 810 or visit facebook.com/LukeLockiesSmartPupsAuction.
