Golfers helped to raise more than £11,000 for a bone cancer charity in memory of an 11-year-old girl from Worle.
The fundraising golfing event is held every year in memory of Mary Collard, who died of bone cancer in 2012.
Her family has been raising money for the Bone Cancer Research Trust ever since then as Mary was a keen golfer.
The fundraiser included a raffle, auction and live band.
Mary's mum Sue said: "It was a lovely day. We had 150 golfers taking part in the golf and the weather stayed good.
