The race to the deadline for using old round one pound coins is definitely on! In just two days, on 15th October, all old £1 coins will cease being legal tender. 

There is still time though to search your purse, pockets and piggy banks for all old £1 coins and make them count by donating to the GivaPound initiative.

Simply donate to the Mouth Cancer Foundation by texting MCFG17 £1 to 70070.

And if you find any old coins after Sunday you can still send them to us. The address is Mouth Cancer Foundation, Top Floor, 1 Victoria Parade, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 3HJ. Don’t forget to check under the sofa!
