Obselete currency to donate

in Charities
3 replies 777 views
I'm not sure where to list this, but as I'm intending to donate this money, maybe this is the correct place?

Anyhow, I was off work yesterday and took the opportunity to clear out a few drawers. Very satisfying job (I need to get out more!)

I now have a bag full of mostly coin, obselete (pre Euro) currency. Lira, Pesetas, Francs etc. A few Lira notes also.

Is there any charity which would take this?

    Oxfam shops ( and probably other charity shops) have an outlet for old and foreign currency ( notes and coins) and would be happy to receive your donation.

    Our local hospice shop takes foreign currency, as well as Oxfam

    Thanks to you both. I'll pop it into Oxfam.
