Sainsbury’s in London Colney is encouraging customers to donate old coins to raise money for charity.

The supermarket has teamed up with ‘Cash4Coins’ to raise money for The Royal British Legion and Poppyscotland, and customers can donate old coins, notes and unwanted foreign currency.

The service has been rolled out to 220 Sainsbury’s supermarkets which have a travel money bureau. Any foreign currency can be deposited, as well as money which has gone out of circulation, including the old five pound note.

Store manager Adrian Cousins said: “We know lots of our customers come back from a holiday or trip abroad with leftover foreign currency which ends up hidden at the back of a drawer or stashed in a piggy bank.

“We hope to make it easier for customers to pass on their leftover currency while also generating vital funds for The Royal British Legion.”
