Haven House Children’s Hospice, in High Road, Woodford Green, received the donation of 300 items from The Sikh Welfare and Awareness Team (SWAT).
Mike Palfreman, chief executive of Haven House, said the donation was fantastic.
He said: “We have been left overwhelmed by the generosity of SWAT London in purchasing so many specialist toys and equipment from our wish list.
“The items will be of great use in the hospice and for our toy home loan service.”
