A CARSTAIRS mum is holding a charity night to raise both money and awareness of autism.

There are over 500,000 people with autism in the UK and that includes Emma McCrae’s seven-year-old daughter Danielle.

Now Emma is hoping that her 80s themed charity evening, in Carstairs Community Hall on Saturday, February 26, at 7.30pm, will make people more aware of the condition. Tickets cost £5 on 07766 128983.
