Beth Wilkes stops off on her marathon trek around the British coastline

Long-distance walker Beth Wilkes called in at the RNLI lifeboat station in Lyme Regis this week during her marathon journey around the UK coastline.

Beth, from the West Midlands, started her trek at Tower Lifeboat Station on the River Thames, on October 3, and plans to visit all the RNLI premises during the year.

Beth is raising funds for the RNLI and the Lowland Rescue charities and aims to travel some ten miles a day staying with supporters on the way.

She was welcomed in Lyme Regis by volunteer Lifeboat Operations Manager Nick Marks who said: “I never cease to be amazed by the efforts of people supporting the RNLI in our efforts to save lives at sea. I wish Beth every success in her mammoth undertaking.”
