Cancer support continues with new photo series
A photographer has helped raise more than $25,000 to help cancer sufferers.
Well-known Marlborough artist and winemaker Kevin Judd has helped Cancer Society Marlborough raise vital funds with some of his evocative prints.
He has just launched a new series of his work to help keep the money coming in for the Blenheim-based charity.
Framers on Queens in Blenheim are displaying his new works, which have been added to the ‘Colours of Marlborough Series’.
The series has recently been increased to include, amongst others, Kenepuru Sound and Wai- rau Lagoons.
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.
Kevin, who established his own wine label, Greywacke, in 2009 has had his work printed in publications across the globe.
He began helping Cancer Society Marlborough in 2013 after volunteer Trisha Johnson cameup with the concept.
Prints cost $120 and can be framed by staff at Framers on Queen for a further $120.
For every sale $20 is donated to the Cancer Society.
To view the photos, which come in one size of 45cm by 50cm, visit Framers on Queen, at Queen St, Blenheim, or the Marlborough Cancer Society.
Prints are unframed.
