A charity match at Worthing Pavilion Bowling Club on September 11 raised more than £1,500 for hospice care at St Barnabas House.
Mark Strong, club chairman, welcomed a touring party from the Dennyside Bowling Association led by its president, Mark Cohen.
Dennyside's 24 players triumphed by 108 shots to 95 but the real winner was St Barnabas, which has been providing care in Worthing for 50 years.
After the match Ellie Beadell, community fundraiser, gave a short talk on the hospice's work. A table collection, raffle and predict-the-score contest yielded £1,401, which was topped up by Dennyside to £1,500. Well-filled charity jars further boosted the day's takings.
Richard Krupa, captain for the day, presented the cheque and thanked St Barnabas for all the wonderful work they do for people with life-limiting illnesses.
