House to house collections in Sherborne raised more than £6,200 for Marie Curie.
Amy Salmon community fundraiser at Marie Curie Cancer Care, described the total as “fantastic”.
She said the money would go to to the Marie Curie Nursing Service towards providing 310 hours of free local nursing care.
She said: “We have had another successful year thanks to the efforts of our collectors and the generosity of everyone who donated.
“I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved and John Haddock, who has put a lot of hard work into running the house to house collections over the years.”
The collection was held in June.
