Exeter-based mortgage broker The Mortgage Quarter has launched its annual Christmas charity gift appeal and is calling on the local business community to make it the biggest and best yet!

Working in partnership with CoLab Exeter, the donations will be split between eight Exeter-based charities that support individuals, families and children dealing with a wide range of issues, including ill health, homelessness, domestic abuse and mental health challenges. The beneficiaries include RD&E Charity (Bramble Ward), Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF), More Positive Me, The Women’s Centre at CoLab and the CoLab Mens Group.

With so many charities to support, this year’s appeal needs to exceed last year’s bumper collection which filled two rooms and had an estimated value of £8,000. 

James Miles, Director at The Mortgage Quarter, said: “It’s a tough ask this year but we’re confident that our fantastic business community can rally together and help support such a worthy cause. Every single donation will make a positive difference to someone in our community who’s facing a tough Christmas. So please donate all that you can!”

The charities have requested the following gift donations:

  • Toys with CE kite mark
  • Toiletries for men, women and children

  • Sweet treats and selection packs
  • Gloves, hats and scarfs
