It will go towards a £5,000 scheme to lay artificial turf, allowing youngsters to play outside all year round.
The group, which has been running in the village for more than 40 years, is a registered charity catering for nearly 30 chldren aged from two to five.
Swaffham Lions president John Collins, who dropped in on a play session to present staff with a cheque, was given a handmade thank you card by youngsters Izzy and Madison.
