Due to rising costs and decreasing profits, we have taken the difficult decision to close both our 'Shelf Life' shops, based in Crediton and Exminster, this year. Our first priority is to the patients and families affected by blood cancer that we support, and as shop profits decrease, we must redirect resources to raising funds elsewhere. This decision affects only our retail shops; our patient services and the charity will continue as normal. 

The shops have been an important part of ELF for many years, and we are very grateful for the time and dedication provided by our Retail Staff and Volunteers in that time. Thank you too to everyone who has shopped with us and the many donations we have been given to sell.

 The Exminster shop has now closed. A further announcement will be made accordingly regarding a closure date for Crediton. Until then, 'Shelf Life' in Crediton is open for business as normal and your donations of pre-loved items are still very gratefully received.
