I have accumulated a lot of 1p, 2p and 5p coins I would be very pleased to give to a charity. Any suggestions about somewhere I could take them where they would be gratefully received and I wouldn't need to count them, fill in any forms or travel far?

Ooohh, I have lots too, and somewhere local would be good, as they are very heavy. Would it be strange to take them into a second hand shop?

Thanks, I'll take them to the ASDA!

If you bank with HSBC some of their branches have automatic sorting machines.

I'm Head of Fundraising at the British School of Osteopathy, a charity that makes over 40,000 heavily subsidised or free treatments per annum to the Southwark and London-wide community. Having completed a very comfortable new clinic at 118 Southwark Bridge Road, we would welcome donations of coins - which you could drop in to the clinic, or to our 275 Borough High Street address. Also, we have recently registered with the share charity, Sharegift, and would welcome donations of any unwanted share certificates via sharegift if anyone wants to unburden themselves of them, and help an excellent local cause.
best wishes
