Actress Niamh Cusack is the latest famous face to get behind the Ham&High’s Pigs4Kids campaign in aid of a new Swiss Cottage special school.

The 53-year-old, who is currently starring in the award-winning West End show The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time, pledged her support for the campaign recently, which is raising funds for the Swiss Cottage School and Development and Research Centre, in Avenue Road, Swiss Cottage.

Ms Cusack plays the teacher of an autistic boy in her current role and supports a number of charities working with autism off stage.

As part of the Pigs4Kids campaign, the Ham&High is asking readers to raise £60,000 to support the new Swiss Cottage school’s Development and Research Centre.

So far, our campaign has attracted the support of a number of local businesses and high-profile personalities, including education secretary Michael Gove and film star Kevin Spacey.
