The sun shone for an annual fundraising walk in the Moorlands.
The seventh Rubie’s Walk for Meningitis Now took place this month in the Manifold Way.
Rubie Jane Fisher, from Uttoxeter, was just six weeks old when bacterial meningitis stole her short life in 2015.
Since then, her parents Russ and Kerry Fisher, who live in Uttoxeter, have hosted fundraising events in the little tot’s memory, in order to raise awareness and funds for the charity Meningitis Now.
This year’s Rubie’s Walk took place at The Manifold Way, from Hulme End to Waterhouses and back, 17 miles in total.
A spokesman for the walk organisers said: “Thank you to everybody who joined us for our seventh Rubies Walk.
“We had fantastic weather, amazing support and we hope you all enjoyed the day.
“Next year the walk will be held on September 17 – save the date.”
