Time is running out to spend your old one pound coins as they’ve been replaced by the new twelve sided coins and will lose their legal tender status on 15th October 2017.

So if you’re struggling with what to do with your old pound coins then we have the perfect solution…Make your pound count by donating to the GivaPound initiative, which has been set up by Mouth Cancer Foundation Trustee Mahendra Patel.

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.
