A CHARITY night raising funds for a support group for parents who have children with Down's Syndrome is to be held at Higham Ferrers Working Men's Club tomorrow.

Parent support group Ups and Downs was formed six months ago with the aim of promoting inclusion for children with the syndrome as well as raising awareness.

The group is currently looking into gaining charity status, which would enable Ups and Downs to help more parents and children with Down’s Syndrome.

Group member Tom Rees, 29, said: “The biggest help for parents is to speak to other parents who have children with Down’s Syndrome.

“The event is already sold out and we expect about 200 on the night.”

The evening starts at 7.30pm and entertainment is provided by Beatles tribute band Not the Beatles and a raffle supported by local businesses.
