Cullybackey College PTA has come up with a novel way of raising funds, by looking for any old foreign currency that might be lying about the house.

The school want all worldwide current currency in notes or coins and any of the older currency such as German Marks, Spanish Pesetas, old UK shillings, old UK decimal coins including Ireland, Channel Islands, Scotland, Isle of Man and £5/£2 coins.

Old half or full crowns and silver or brass coloured 3 pence can also be exchanged. You can even donate old Farthings and Pennies 1d or 1/2d. The coins and small notes cannot be exchanged in the UK and old Spanish Pesetas cannot be spent in Spain so they are of little value to anyone. The school can turn your old money into a valuable donation. It is estimated that there is £100 million in old or foreign coins across the UK that can be used for good causes. If your business would like to take out a collection to help please get in touch. For more information or to make a donation please call Christine on 07740510805.
