Award-winning professional photographer Lisa North from Harleston has raised £1,000 for the charity Cinnamon Trust.

Volunteers from the charity walk the dogs, take them in if the owner is in hospital, and help with re-homing the animal if necessary.

Throughout April, Ms North gave her time free of charge to take photographs of 30 dogs and cats at her studio, with the owner's donating £30 to the Cinnamon Trust.

She said: 'I wanted to do something for an animal charity in memory of our own beloved dog Cindy, who died in January.
