Tracy Root, aka The Suffolk Fairy Dogmother, gathered friends, clients and fellow dog-owners for her annual charity stroll.

The group of walkers met in Tuddenham Fountain car park and walked along the Fynn valley with their beloved pets.

Tracy, who runs her own dog walking service from her home in Ipswich, was joined on the walk by her own two dogs, Ruff and Tumble.

Tracy said: “The turnout was wonderful and we held a raffle and raised £320.”
