LymeAid UK works to fund private overseas Lyme disease tests to those who need, but can’t afford them. The NHS test is flawed and whilst no test exists to rule out Lyme Borreliosis (Lyme disease), most NHS doctors will not treat based on a clinical diagnosis alone and will misdiagnose as chronic fatigue syndrome/ME or fibromyalgia.
A positive Lyme Disease test is the difference for many people between getting treatment on the NHS or not; or being able to successfully fundraise for and obtain private treatment or not.

How much of my donation goes to LymeAid UK?
We donate the complete exchange value plus 5% extra to LymeAid UK. 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 LymeAid UK.
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 LymeAid UK.
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.
