Professional golfer Chris Wood and his dad Richard have presented Children's Hospice South West (CHSW) with a cheque for £8,000.
Richard chose the charity during his time as captain of Long Ashton Golf Club and said it was a 'natural' choice being he lives so close to the hospice.
He and his son visited CHSW's Charlton Farm in Bristol to hand over the donation, and the money was raised last summer through a celebrity golf day in July.
Chris and two European Tour golfers, Dave Horsey and Jamie Donaldson, played at Long Ashton's club on the charity day, which was hosted by Geoff Twentyman.
CHSW community fundraiser Kylie Gallagher, said: "Without such donations in the community we would not be able to offer respite, palliative, end-of-life and bereavement care to families.
"We would like to thank everyone who supported the event and donated to all the good causes."
