Websites by Cosmic: Exeter Leukaemia Fund

2nd April 2015

Today’s featured ‘website gone live’ is Exeter Leukaemia Fund, often referred to as ELF.

ELF were already receiving technical support from Cosmic, so came to Cosmic’s web team to give their website a new lease of life.

Who are Exeter Leukaemia Fund?

“ELF’s vision is that every family affected by blood cancers and blood disorders across the South West receives compassionate, tailored support. ELF lightens the load, supporting families from diagnosis and through treatment.”

What did they want?

ELF required a website that could show off all of the great things they do in an easy to use content management system.

They wanted to the ability to sell products online, so PayPal buttons were added to an online shop page so that they could sell their knitted ducks and other types of merchandise such as polo shirts and teddy bears.

This was all developed in the content management system Drupal – this system allows for further and more extensive development much more easily. Our designer created a bright, clean design with great grid layouts for internal pages so that content can be browsed and found quickly and easily.

The ELF team can add charity shops to their website, different way people can get involved and help the cause, as well as news that is happening at the organisation. The website is also responsive, which means it will display perfectly for users on devices such as smartphones and tablets.

What did they say?

Maggie ‘Mags’ Naylor, chief executive at ELF said the following about Cosmic’s work in the website design, development and support:

“The Cosmic experience was highly professional and courteous, really listening to the needs of the customer, involving the customer at all stages of the development and producing the goods with excellent results.”
