In exactly one month on 15th October all old £1 coins will cease being legal tender. So we’re encouraging anyone with old £1 coins 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.
