A Welsh grandmother is walking more than 1000 miles around Wales to raise money for a homeless charity.

" I have had a couple of times along the way where I've had a bit of a bad leg and I've had difficult days" she told ITV News.

"But considering the distance, and the fact that I've walked every day fifteen miles for sixty days, I've been very lucky. I've met some fabulous people along the way"
