Two London Trickies have helped this year’s March for Men fundraising walk smash the £1million mark in aid of Prostrate Cancer UK.
Michael Helme and Stephen Crean walked more than a marathon on the fourth day of Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling’s epic walk, taking in some of the capital’s football grounds.
Starting at West Ham’s London Stadium, the 28-mile walk took in Charlton Athletic, Millwall and Arsenal (wonder when we’ll be back there…) before finishing at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Among the other famous faces on the walk were Chris Kamara, Matt Le Tissier, Mark Bright and one-time Forest loanee Francis Benali.
Jeff Stelling, the ambassador for Prostrate Cancer UK, said: “It’s been an incredible journey, one I wouldn’t have managed without the fantastic support of the public, football clubs, football fans from across the four nations and everyone at Prostate Cancer UK.
“My legs aren’t thanking me now but knowing that the extraordinary amount of money we’ve raised will fund life-saving research so that in years to come, prostate cancer will be a disease that men and their families need not fear, certainly eases the pain.”
