Jeff Stelling has revealed that he’s now raised over £800,000 for charity in the past two years.

The Sky Sports presenter walked 400 miles this summer to raise over £375,000 towards that total.

This latest walk taking Jeff Stelling from Exeter’s St James Park to the Tyneside one.

The presenter declaring ‘The raucous welcome from the Geordie supporters as I made the final steps into St James’ Park is something I’ll never forget’.

Jeff Stelling:

“The new football season may be well underway, and league tables are starting to take shape up and down the country, but I wanted to take a moment to thank you for getting behind my 400-mile March for Men in June and for supporting Prostate Cancer UK.

“I’m immensely proud to have completed this challenge for Prostate Cancer UK, a charity incredibly close to my heart.

“It was an amazing journey, all the way from Exeter City to Newcastle United with some amazing local support and the raucous welcome from the Geordie supporters as I made the final steps into St James’ Park is something I’ll never forget.

“Over two years I’m proud to have raised more than £800,000 for this brilliant charity, from Hartlepool to Wembley, and now Exeter to Newcastle, through footballing hotbeds, up hills and down dales with an amazing cast of friends old and new, celebrity and civilian but united with one aim, to tame this dreadful disease.”

    Good on him for his exploits for a worthy cause.
    Maybe now he’ll have a bit more positive input about Newcastle than he generally did before his trek.

    For some reason I’ve always had the feeling that he classes us as a club as second rate and only worth a passing mention most of the time.

    Maybe I’m reading too much into his body language.
    Does anyone else have this feeling?

      Hello mate, I think he’s always been fair to the north east clubs being a Hartlepool supporter himself and I believe he lives not far from there.

      He’s certainly a lot better towards us than certain others on Soccer saturday!

      A big well done to Jeff and everyone involved for this worthy cause.

        Well said. Stelling seems a perfectly decent bloke. Good on him.

      • ghostrider

        Aye mate, it’s probably just me thinking he seemed a bit off with us at times.

        • Mark Davies

          Aye, normally when Hartlepools getting beat and he looks fed up with life….unfortunatley nearly every week then the poor sod!
