The wet weather did not deter hundreds of fundraisers taking part in an annual charity walk.

Pill cancer charity Penny Brohn held its annual Stomp event on October 13, which saw more than 420 people don the charity's purple T-shirts and walk the six-mile route from Anchor Square in Bristol, following the towpath alongside Avon Gorge, before finishing at Penny Brohn centre in Pill.

The event has raised £28,000 for the charity.

Penny Brohn community fundraising officer, Sophie Thomas said: "We were thrilled to have so many walkers take part in this year's Stomp.

"Despite the soggy start spirits were high and Stompers created a purple spectacle across the city.

"We can't wait to see you all again next year."
