BRENTFORD'S walk to Stockport next month will raise funds for the Paul Levitt Foundation.

A physio at Brentford Community Sports Trust's Centre of Excellence, Levitt was diagnosed with a brain tumour a few years back.

And a proportion of the cash raised by the walk will go to his charity, which supports cancer research organisations across the country.

A group of Bees fans are planning to set out a week or so before Brentford's final away fixture of the season, at Stockport on April 26, and walk the 176 miles from Griffin Park to the County Ground.

Bees supporters are famed for their marathon walks in recent years, having trekked to Hartlepool once, Wycombe a number of times and cycled to Brighton.

Stockport was chosen as, like Brentford, are owned by their supporters.

Walk organiser Natasha Judge, of Brentford's owners Bees United, said: "Together fans can make a real difference to the way football as an industry treats its customers.

"It's vital that Brentford supporters all pull in the same direction, and that way the club will ultimately go on to be a success."

Dan Levy, a member of Stockport's trust board, added: "The long distance walking of Brentford's fans is inspiring, and helps to remind us all that football is about fans.

"County and Brentford have a lot in common - we are both fan-owned neighbourhood clubs close to large and impersonal premiership giants."

The route will be published next week, and any walkers who want to join for any part of the route are welcome. Email
