Supporting people with spinal cord injuries
Every eight hours, someone in the UK is paralysed by a spinal cord injury. It can happen to anyone at any time, and no one is prepared for how it will change their life. Aspire is a national spinal injury charity that exists because there is currently no cure. Aspire provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by spinal cord injuries, helping them move from injury to independence.
Through its projects and programmes, Aspire offers practical support to the 40,000 people living with a spinal cord injury in the UK. This support allows people with spinal injury to lead fulfilled and independent lives in their homes, with their families, in their workplace and in leisure time. Apire’s services include: Aspire Grants, Aspire Housing, Independent Living, Welfare Benefits Advice, Assistive Technology, Campaigning and Research.
Donate your leftover travel money to Aspire
Do you have a drawer or jam jar, filled with foreign coins, left over travel money from previous holidays? Would you consider donating that forgotten currency to help fund a good cause?
It's easy to donate your leftover holiday cash; Simply fill out our charity exchange form and send it along with your currency to our London office. We will exchange all currency, coins and notes, foreign and domestic, and donate the exchange value plus 5% extra to Aspire.
How much of my donation goes to Aspire?
We donate the complete exchange value plus 5% extra to Aspire. There are no fees, neither do we subtract any commission. You will receive a confirmation email, containing the amount donate. We will share this information with Aspire.
Which banknotes and coins can I donate?
You can donate any coins or notes, foreign or domestic. We will exchange whatever currency you send us and will donate the combined exchange value plus five percent extra to Aspire.
We will exchange currencies listed on our exchangeable currencies page against the exchange rates shows.
All other banknotes and coins will be exchanged against their numismatic value, bullion value or scrap metal value, whichever is higher. It helps if you sort the currency before you send it. But if you are unable to sort your currency, don't worry. We will take care of the sorting and counting free of charge.
