A pho­tog­ra­pher has helped raise more than $25,000 to help can­cer suf­fer­ers.

Can­cer So­ci­ety Marl­bor­ough spokes­woman Anna Small says the money raised has gone di­rectly to help the Marl­bor­ough Com­mu­nity.

‘‘The money has been used for our sup­port and in­for­ma­tion ser­vices. So it has all stayed lo­cally to help peo­ple in the Marl­bor­ough com­mu­nity af­fected by can­cer.

‘‘Whether it’s coun­selling ses­sions, liv­ing well or other sup­port pro­grammes, in­for­ma­tion re­sources or per­son­alised ad­vice and sup­port for pa­tients and their fam­i­lies; our ser­vices are free to any­one who needs them be­cause of do­na­tions and money raised from projects like this.

‘‘It has also helped with our health pro­mo­tion pro­grammes in the com­mu­nity,’’ she says.
