A dog walk organised by the Hearing Care Centre in Ipswich raised £500 for charity over the weekend.
The event saw 60 walkers and their canine companions complete a 4.5 mile walk between Newbourne and Waldringfield.
The money raised will help fund training for hearing dogs for deaf people.
Those who took part also enjoyed breakfast at the halfway point at The Maybush Inn, donated by Steve Lomas at Deben Inns.
Ipswich Hearing Care Centre audiologist and managing director Karen Finch, who took part in the walk with her cockapoo spaniel, said: “We are extremely thankful to the Deben Inns for their generous donation and for all our guests who came and took part.
“It was fabulous to have two hearing dogs with us as well.”
The walk formed part of the Suffolk Walking Festival, which ends on June 4.
