The Friends of Doddington Hospital received a £400 boost thanks to a charity evening held at the GER Sports Club in March.
The fundraiser and entertainment was organised by Paul Rogers from the band Dark Surrender.
The money will go towards buying equipment for Doddington Community Hospital.
This year the performers were singer-songwriter Sophie, Alchemy singing the old favourites and Dark Surrender playing rock classics from five decades and Andy J doing the disco.
At the end of the evening the cheques were donated to Maureen Coker, secretary of the Doddington branch of the Friends of the Doddington Hospital.
