According to research, the average Brit has £60.78 at home in unused current and old foreign currency, and this idle change could be used to help fund a lifesaving mission with Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.
As 2019 comes to a close, the vitally important pre-hospital charity is raising awareness of its partnership with Cash4Coins, which enables old coins, foreign coins and banknotes to be donated to the charity.
Currency of any age can be donated to the charity, including; all foreign coins and banknotes, old £1 coins, old British and Irish currency, pre-decimal coins and notes, pre-euro currency and of course, spare change.
The cash can be donated at most high street banks and building societies across Shropshire, Staffordshire, West Midlands, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. The charity also has a number of collection boxes in shops and community hubs throughout the region.
Emma Gray, fundraising and marketing director for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: “Midlands Air Ambulance Charity relies solely on the support of the public and local businesses to stay operational. Donating unused cash lying around the home is a fantastic way to support our lifesaving service in an easy, fuss-free way.
“Without donations, our charity simply wouldn’t be able to save lives every day, so all support is hugely appreciated.”
