Let’s work together to transform the lives of disabled people across the UK

Christmas Wish List

Due to restrictions currently in place due to Coronavirus, some residents will be spending Christmas at our Independent Living Service. This means they will not be spending Christmas with their families this year. Please help us to make residents' Christmas special by purchasing presents for them to enjoy.

What you need to do: 

1. Choose one or several available resident groups from the list below and commit to buying presents for each resident in this group, with a suggested value of £25 per individual.

2. We will send you more information on the type of gifts residents in this category would enjoy, so your staff can enjoy coming up with great gift ideas

3. Buy your gifts for everyone in your group by Monday 14th December and contact us to arrange delivery to QEF's Leatherhead Court before Friday 18th December. 

4. We will then ensure that each of the gifts are received by residents on or before Christmas Eve.  Photos will be available for each resident (where consent is given) for you to use on your social media.

Can you donate Personal Protective Equipment to protect QEF’s frontline staff or make a donation towards the cost of PPE?

As a charity QEF relies on voluntary income so our frontline staff can go above and beyond to care for our clients and residents. This includes ensuring we have PPE for our key workers. As a direct result of Covid-19 we have seen our PPE expenditure increase from an average monthly spend of £400 to £6,5000 in April 2020 alone. Can you help us?

PPE that QEF uses include:

  • Fluid repellent surgical masks
  • Aprons
  • Gloves
  • Eye protection
  • Liquid soap with 60% alcohol content
  • Disposable hand towels

If your company makes any of the above PPE and can donate items to QEF frontline staff, please contact Jon Rodriguez on jon.rodriguez@qef.org.uk

If you would like to make a donation towards the purchase of PPE, please also contact Jon on jon.rodriguez@qef.org.uk  Thank you so much for your incredible support.

Our Partnership with Exxon Mobil 

ExxonMobil’s support of QEF has had an extremely positive impact on all of our staff. From volunteer days across their services to sponsorship of some really wonderful events, we are always happy to help such a worthwhile cause. As well as this we have had a fantastic time fundraising for QEF, being involved in events such as the Prudential Ride London–Surrey 100 bike event."
