The GentleLady Care Breast Cancer Support Group launched a fundraising drive to buy a special bed for the chemotherapy department at the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton.
She added: "We're indebted to the GentleLady Breast Cancer Support Group for this generous donation.
Thirty members of the Forum Bowls Club took part and they were accompanied by 15 members of the Gentlelady Care, the majority of whom have been affected by breast cancer.
The game of bowls was entirely new to the members of Gentlelady Care and some of the younger people taking part, several of them now intend taking up the sport.
The cash was raised during a series of fundraising events organised by the Gentlelady Care Group, including a summer fair, a coffee morning at theWynyard Pub, Billingham, and a 24-hour bowls marathon at Billingham Forum Indoor Bowling Club.
Wendy Anderson, 42 from Middlesbrough, a nurse in the chemotherapy unit for 14 years said: "We are very grateful to Gentlelady for their donations, we wouldn't be able to manage without the fundraising efforts of people like them.
Billingham Indoor Bowls Club has raised pounds 2,000 for the Gentlelady
