On 28 March this year a new £1 coin was brought into circulation, and as of midnight on 15 October 2017, all old £1 coins will no longer be legal tender.
If you have a collection tin, bucket or box please empty it, count it, bank it and return it to us! After 15 October we will no longer be able to use any old £1 coins you may have collected - make sure we don’t miss out on your hard work!
Fancy a challenge?
Why not set up your own £1 Challenge at your school or workplace and ask everyone to bring in their old £1 coins? Whether it's setting up an office £1 coin collection and setting challenges for your boss or colleagues, or collecting £1 coins at your school and making a line from one end of the playground to the other, there's loads you can do to help raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
