Jeff, from Hartlepool, is walking 400 miles from St James Park in Exeter to St James’ Park in Newcastle, leading his squad of walkers to over 40 football clubs en route. The 62-year-old started the two week challenge on June 2nd and aims to complete it on June 16th.
Following their overnight stay at Rockliffe Hall, in Hurworth, County Durham, the walking team’s route for the penultimate day of their challenge will take in Darlington’s Blackwell Meadows, Middlesbrough Football Club’s Riverside Stadium and will finish at Hartlepool’s Victoria Park.
Anyone who wants to join in for one of the final 2 days of the challenge can pay a £25 registration fee and must pledge to raise at least £300 in sponsorship. Visit www.prostatecanceruk.org for more information.
Prostate Cancer UK aims to raise money for better diagnosis, better treatment and better support, and to make sure people across the country know about the problem. The charity is striving to beat the disease which affects one in eight men across the UK.
Eamonn Elliott, Chief Executive of Rockliffe Hall, said: “Jeff and his team are very welcome here at Rockliffe Hall. We’re delighted to be able to do our bit by offering them a luxurious place to rest their heads, and feet, for the night, before they continue on their epic challenge for such a worthy cause.”
