South Regional TAFE students at the Collie campus are excited to be part of an international project collecting bread tags to help fund wheelchairs in South Africa.

The Bread Tags for Wheelchairs organisation has been collecting bread tags for several years. They collect about 500kg a month which funds up to three wheelchairs.
