A GROUP of QPR supporters will cross the capital on foot this Saturday to raise funds for children with Down's Syndrome.

The Rangers fans are walking from Loftus Road to Crystal Palace's Selhurst Park ground in aid of the QPR Tiger Cubs, ahead of the Championship clash between the two clubs.

The Tiger Cubs team, established in 2008 by QPR's Community Trust scheme to improve the health and social life of boys and girls with Down's Syndrome, draws youngsters from across London to their training sessions each week.

QPR Community Trust chief executive Andy Evans said: "The kids get an incredible amount of satisfaction, a sense of belonging and it provides a support network for the parents where they can share common experiences."
