Preparations for 500 mile walk

It's hoped a 500 mile pilgrimage is going to raise £7500 for the Isle of Man Children's Hospice, Rebecca House.

Kate Kirk and Sue Moore (pictured) will be setting off on their trip in just over a week.

Their travels will take them along an ancient trail called the Camino de Frances, which goes over the Pyrenees, across the north of Spain and almost to the Atlantic sea.

So far the pair have raised £6000 - and that's without their sponsorship money.

They expect the trip to take them around six weeks, and say when they come back it might be something of an anti-climax:
