Supporting everyone affected by spinal cord injury
Spinal cord injury changes your life in an instant. The impact on you and your family can seem catastrophic, affecting every area of your life from your bladder, bowel and sexual functions to your career and relationships.
Back Up is a leading UK charity that inspires people affected by spinal cord injury to get the most out of life. Each year, they reach over 800 people with their award-winning services that are designed and delivered by people affected by spinal cord injury.
With an amazing team of over 400 volunteers, Back Up offer wheelchair skills training, an accredited mentoring service, telephone support, life skills and activity courses, and support returning to work or education.
They also offer support to family members, and they’re the only UK charity with dedicated services for children and young people with a spinal cord injury. All their services give people the skills, confidence and independence to get back up to living life to the full.
Donate your leftover travel money to Back Up
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 Back Up.
How much of my donation goes to Back Up?
We donate the complete exchange value plus 5% extra to Back Up. 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 Back Up.
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 Back Up.
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.
