I’m an autistic celebrity in the jungle
Anne Hegerty, a supporter of the National Autistic Society, joined the line-up in the jungle for ITV’s I’m A Celebrity last month (and is still in the jungle at the time of writing) and is already a firm favourite with the show’s fans – and doing a wonderful job increasing the public’s understanding of autism.
We’re massive fans of Anne’s, who talked about her autism in our magazine, and thrilled when she’s been able to work with our charity. Her strength and openness as she copes with all the challenges on I’m a Celebrity is giving people an invaluable and sympathetic insight into autism.
And, if you or your friends are involved with a school that would like a chance to win a visit from Anne, ask them to sign up for World Autism Awareness Week 2019.
