A men's bowling club presented a cheque for £650 to St Peter’s Hospice.
Portishead Men's Bowling Club captain Richard Brake presented Alison Spurrell, the representative of their nominated charity for the season, with the huge amount of money this month.
Brake chose the charity, which covers Bristol, South Gloucestershire and the North Somerset, as he has had first-hand experience of their amazing work in bringing help and dignity to those with terminal illness.
"Love, compassion and service freely given in a happy environment was, and is, the hallmark of their reputation," Brake said.
Brake first collected the money in the summer from members in a fun way for misdemeanours such as bowling and other more obscure reasons.
This ensured a healthy amount is collected during the season which is then added to other amounts of money raised during other charity events, held jointly, and mainly organised by, Portishead Ladies Bowling Club, before presenting the cheque at their AGM.
