A CAMPAIGNER who was recently awarded an MBE will be the guest speaker at an autism event.

This year's Autistic Pride will be held at the Miniature Railway at Prospect Park from 11am on June 10.

Carly Jones, who works closely with Autism Berkshire, is among the special guests for the annual celebration.

Rachel Cotton, event organiser, said:" We are absolutely thrilled to be still running this event four years on, its such a gift to be able to share autistic culture with so many.

"I am so grateful to those visitors who are returning year and year. I do hope to see you all again this year.

"Without your support, this event would not happen so thank you so much for your enthusiasm."

Autistic Pride Reading is currently in the process of becoming a charity and runs an autism positive family group.
