Coastal walk for Jim

Daily Echo

A YOUNG girl has raised more than £1,000 for the Jim Cronin Memorial fund after deciding to walk along the Jurassic Coast and on to Monkey World. Eleven-year-old Bethany Henson spent five days hiking from Lyme Regis to Lulworth and then up though Wool to the world famous ape rescue centre. And though rather wet and weary, she completed the 65-mile trek, with her aunt Michelle Marriott, and arrived at Monkey World last Saturday to present the cash to staff at the conservation centre. Dad Brian said: "We are very proud of what she has done, although I tried to talk her out of it at first because I knew what it would involve! "She is feeling very tired now, as she didn't realise the cliffs at Lyme Regis would be quite as high as they were. But it's been quite an experience and she is very excited to have completed the trek." The youngster from south Wales decided to help the rescue centre after becoming hooked on the Monkey Business TV show featuring the work of the late Jim Cronin and his wife Alison. Bethany now plans to organise a non-uniform day at her school to boost the final tally for the memorial fund to £1,500. 11:46am Thursday 23rd August 2007
