TV presenter joins walk through south Sefton for cancer charity

by Tom Martin (September 2021)

A GROUP of walkers set off on an epic journey and visited Marine FC, Aintree Racecourse as well as Goodison Park, Anfield and Tranmere Rovers’ Prenton Park for charity.

The walkers were joined by television presenter Jeff Stelling, who takes part in these challenges across the country every year to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

This year, the 66-year-old is tackling four walking marathons in four regions, and his third march took place on Merseyside on Wednesday, September 1.

The route started at Tranmere Rovers and ended with a short stroll across Stanley Park from Goodison Park to Anfield.

They also visited the Marine Travel Arena and Aintree Racecourse earlier in the day.

Anfield was a fitting finale on the day, as Jeff was able to pay tribute to Reds legend Ray Clemence, who sadly died last year after a long battle with prostate cancer.

Jeff was joined on the walk by Stephen Clemence, Ray’s son,  as a wreath was then placed at L4 in memory of the goalkeeping great.

The aim of the challenge is to fund lifesaving research to improve testing, treatments and care for those impacted by the most common cancer in men. 

Jeff said: “One in eight men in the UK will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. I deal in stats but that one still shocks me.

“Last year, we lost the great Ray Clemence to prostate cancer. A terrific goalkeeper and a terrific human being.”
