PENARTH Male Voice Choir presented a cheque for £200 to the local Marie Curie Hospice.
The money was raised by donations from members of the public during concerts organised by the choir.
Karen Jones, Hospice Fundraising Manager, collected the cheque at Redlands House last Wednesday (August 29).
Barrie Jones, conductor of the choir, said: "The hospice is our local charity and many of us have a link to it."
Phil Thomas, Chairman of Penarth Male Voice Choir, which was founded in 1896, said: "Marie Curie is one of Penarth's number one institutions. We have the greatest pleasure in presenting Karen with a cheque for £200 and wish her the best."
Karen thanked the choir and said the need for fundraising for the hospice was 'ongoing'.
"We are really appreciative of local organisations who raise the majority of our funds to keep us going," she said. Penarth Male Voice Choir perform at a range of venues in and around Penarth, including Redlands House, and also sing at weddings and special events.
The group meet every Wednesday at 7pm at Redlands House, Redlands Avenue.
