What we do

Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF) is a registered charity supporting patients and their families attending the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital who are affected by blood cancers and blood disorders.

In this life changing situation, ELF provides vital support to lighten the load for patients and families who attend the Haematology Centre at the RD & E Hospital, in Exeter. ELF has helped to fund the building of the Haematology Centre and most recently completely funded the building of the Chevithorne family suite (a critical care unit at the Yarty ward of the Haematology Centre). At the hospital ELF provides its own ELF Support Services and funds NHS Nurses and Supporting Patient Roles, in the Community ELF provides @home services.  ELF has no public or statutory investment, all services are provided by the generosity of donations and ELFs’ own income generation of fundraising and charity retail.

Get involved

There are so many ways that you can get involved and support ELF in its mission. From donating your unwanted goods or holding your own fundraising event, we can give you all the support you need. Perhaps you have a few spare hours on your hands? We are always looking for volunteers to help in our shops, at events and in our office.
