"The Marc Anthony Fund donation also enabled the purchase of a critical care trolley which will facilitate the safe transfer of children both within our hospital and to other regional centres.
"We would all like to take this opportunity to give our sincere thanks to Mr Payne for his on-going fundraising, which ultimately supports the care for the children."
Reg Payne Junior, secretary of the charity, said: "The gift was made possible after a donation of £14,800 to the fund from Plymouth Oceana Nightclub and its parent company Laminar."
The fund was set up in 1996 by the late former councillor Reg Payne Senior in loving memory of his grandson Marc Anthony, who died in 1995 at Derriford Hospital.
