Wondering what to do with any old £1 coins that you have before they cease being legal tender on 15th October?   We’re encouraging anyone with that dilemma to make your pound count by donating to the GivaPound initiative.

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

Or send your old pound coins to us before October.  The address is Mouth Cancer Foundation, Top Floor, 1 Victoria Parade, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 3HJ.   Don’t forget to check behind the sofa!

The aim of GivaPound is to see how much a donation of just £1 can turn into at the end of 365 days. If everyone you know gave £1 to their chosen cause the funds would soon multiply.
