"Fascinated by the story of the pilgrimage I vowed I would do it one day."
She added: "Sadly Carole Longville, a fellow U3A member who was going to do it with me, became ill and passed away earlier this year.
"My walk will be dedicated to my husband Ted who bore his illness so bravely and to Carole, who made the Pilgrimage sound so easy and was so full of encouragement.
